Unless you live in your own little world, you know that one of the latest trends is to “go green.” All that means is to be or become more environmentally conscious and use recycled or renewable stuff rather than pollutants and plastic (or at least that’s my take). So apparently, the Ebeling house is going green. Or at least our pool is. I don’t like it one bit.
Seems that part that turns salt into chlorine is no longer working so all the chemicals I dumped in to try and get things right were wasted and I need to replace that part before we can get rid of the green. Arrggg.
I think it’s like some of the trends in the church world though. They sound good, but don’t fit every location and situation. Not every church is supposed to be multi-site or “contemporary” (whatever that means) or emergent or “not your Grandma’s church” or even “seeker sensitive” There’s a million other buzz words and trends that sound good – especially when explained and examined in light of a church that’s successfully doing it. But just like going green isn’t good when applied to my pool….following the latest trend isn’t always healthy for the local church. Just figured I’d share. Anybody up for a swim?
