 RICH MELHEIM VISIT 
AN AWESOME EXPERIENCE FOR ALL!

Rich made it to Boston on Monday - and is fine. He checked in with us later in the day. 

He shared the following about his experience with Trinity with a number of pastors online on Monday:

I'm learning a little every day. Sunday [at Trinity Lutheran, Pembroke Pines]
  
 I learned that 5 year olds can teach their own parents about God in beautiful and articulate ways if you put them in the same space and set a system in place where you ask THEM to relate common things to God. 

I'm also learning that worship and Sunday school can be blended into one cross+generational experience that parents, children and surrogate adopted adults and elders can enjoy together.

I'm also learning in more and more profound ways that churches who try to do television-era worship ("I put on a good show and hope you sit and watch/listen) in an internet-era world will be playing an increasingly frustrating game.

If you have 3 worship services right now, might you consider tithing one of them to the generation that is, not the generation that was?

If you have 2 worship services and a competing Sunday school, might you consider canceling the Sunday school and blending elements of cross+gen worship into one of the two time frames?

And whether you can get away with killing Sunday school before it kills the church or not, might you consider preaching on the same story you are teaching, and calling parents and kids together to engage in nightly faith encounters?


THANK YOU TO EVERYONE WHO TURNED OUT FOR THE AFTERNOON WORKSHOP AND EVENING "COMEDY HOUR" and THANK YOU TO THE "WORSHIP TOGETHER" PARENTS, CHILDREN, YOUTH, SINGLES, COUPLES, AND GRANDPARENTS AT TRINITY WHO HAVE TAKEN AN IDEA AND USED IT TO TRANSFORM THE WAY THAT FAITH IS SHARED AND ENCOURAGED! 

I REMAIN IN AWE AND HUMBLED AS YOUR PASTOR AT WHAT GOD IS DOING IN OUR MIDST! 

Ever in Christ
Pastor Keith
