Church Family and Family Church

I’ve been thinking a lot about family lately. I just got married to a beautiful, loving young woman, and we now have two dogs. My wife and I are classified as family, but what about the dogs? That may seem silly, but the point is family isn’t so easy to define. Should we include close friends, because many times people have friends living with them. It gets even more complicated in the church setting. Healthy churches reach families, it provides stability and future resources. However, with the family structure changing our methods must change as well. Churches can no longer do things the way we have always done it. Even TV commercials have changed their approach. They may show a stay at home dad, which is contrary to the old way of only showing mothers in cleaning commercials. So why does the church keep our methods the same. I’m not saying that we should accept sinful relationships in any of their forms, whether heterosexual or homosexual, but I am saying that if we are going to disciple the modern family we are going to have to be open to new ideas.
