“I think one of the great strengths of the church is when it serves as an oasis within the culture, and offers a distinctive alternative to the prevailing values surrounding it.

Unfortunately, the attitude in many modern churches is, ‘No, we need to be just like the culture in order to draw as many as we can.’

But when you don’t offer people something that is genuinely different, then they’ll question why they need to be there in the first place.”
