well said Ryan. I spoke at Greenbelt 3 or 4 years back on the uselessness of trying to be "relevant" - what's needed is to be authentic and connected. "Relevance" is not only a mirage that disappears as soon as you reach it, but a goal that compromises authenticity in the end.

So what did you do to create an environment for both the young and old to create worship? Could you take this from the theological language to the practical or sociological?

Spot on Ryan. In an age of iPods it is rediculous to think of changing musical genre as THE ANSWER. Chasing after demographics leads us into a process of infinite regression.

Children have to have more than just school and women jordan heels family life to keep them busy. Take the time to indulge and encourage your children to choose an activity that they can do on their own. The most common suggestion is sports and that is quite understandable however there are other things that parents can introduce to their children such as arts. Dance falls under arts so now it is time to talk at length about ballet.
