The reflection on cms.com encourages us to think of ways that we put up with broken things in our churches.
So what’s broken in church?
It’s worth pointing out that Godin makes the distinction that ‘broken’ is subjective. If I think it’s broken, it’s broken.
When someone walks into your church for the first time, what’s broken? It could be anything from the ingrained church lingo (narthex, sacristy or undercroft are not good terms to use when telling somewhere how to get somewhere in the church building) to the automaton stand up/sit down that happens as if on telekinetic cue, leaving a visitor standing when they should be sittig or vice-versa.
