From C. Michael Patton:
What I have been coming to realize over the years is that there is simply no one way to do church. …
You need to read the whole post at Parchment and Pen to get the real drift of what he’s saying, complete with evangelical discomfort with a seeker sensitive service, a discomfort I share to some extent. I do think he makes some excellent points for people on both sides to consider.
On the one hand, advocates of seeker sensitive worship should take to heart the points about discipleship. Christian discipleship is not really all that seeker sensitive!
On the other, many do well to consider why people come to hear the gospel under some circumstances, but not others.
