Everyone experiences certain significant—even catastrophic—changes in their lives that force them to begin living in an entirely new way. In today’s jargon, people call that “the new normal.”
The church is not immune to change. In fact, one of the realities that has often vexed pastors is the entirely dynamic nature of the church. People often seem to float in and out of the pews. Just when some particular family seems to have become completely integrated into the life of the church, the company for which the dad of the family works decides to move him a thousand miles away.
In order to properly manage change in the life of the church, a pastor needs to become very facile at handling whatever “new normal” may come his or her way. That’s the very subject I decided to talk about in Podcast No. 216. I hope you will find what I say interesting enough to grant me fifteen minutes of your time.

On this Podcast, I have a lively exchange with my colleague and host. I think you will find what we have to say interesting and even thought-provoking. At least that’s my hope.
I continue to receive many positive comments about my latest book entitled The Sermon Sucking Black Hole—Why You Can’t Remember on Monday What Your Minister Preached on Sunday. This book is now available at Amazon.com by clicking here.
This book gives some solid tips to the people sitting in the congregation to help them remember what you’ve said from the pulpit when they come to worship services in your church.
