"Stand Firm" on TCN/Revitalization
One of the more dubious phenomena in the LCMS today is the "Transforming Congregations Network" and its "Revitalization" process. It's a program or approach to church that is growing in our circles, about which many of us have some serious reservations.
Scott over at "Stand Firm" has begun a series of articles taking a closer (and critical) look at TCN and Revitalization. If your congregation is considering participating in something like this, you do well to read Scott's work carefully:
The Transforming Churches Network: Part 1, A Non-Native Invasion
The Transforming Churches Network: Part 2, It's All About Commitment
The Transforming Churches Network: Part 3, Eliminating Regressive Attitudes
