I read a great quote from Peter Drucker today:
“The business of a church is to change people; the business of a corporation is to satisfy them.“
What I find interesting is that many companies advertise personal change through their product in order to attract/maintain customers. Buy this car, beer, toothpaste, clothes, etc. and you will be a new, sleeker, stylish person.
On the other hand, a lot of churches advertise personal satisfaction in order to attract/maintain a congregation. We have multiple services, different worship styles, kids program, etc. Come to our church and we will meet your needs and bring purpose for your life in a convenient package.
It’s funny how the lines blur.
