I think Sam said this very well yesterday.
In our excitement to become Orange and better engage with parents, we can easily have an identity crisis. We can forget what it means to be Yellow. We lose track of what being the church is all about, which is to proclaim the love of Christ through the power of his word.
Orange is a strategy. Being Red or Yellow is more about describing a state of being. The church needs to BE yellow! Don’t get distracted by the strategy because the strategy is simply meant to point parents to the light of Christ, which is what the Church is suposed to be.
Regardless of the curriculum we’re using, are we clearly communicating the gospel? Are your kidsÂ understandingÂ the message of Christ. Find ways to connect with parents. Find ways to help parents pass on their faith. But in doing all of this, don’t forget to be theÂ church!
