Is it only a change in culture, a shifting from a Christian era to a post-Christian period in world history? Has the redeeming message of Christ lost its relevancy to a modern world? Or, as author W. Jerry Murray asks, have we failed to bring glory to God, not only in our lives- but also in our places of worship? In our attempts to be mega, have we become mundane? In our attempts to be acceptable to the world, have we failed to be separated from the world?

Jerry Murray calls us all to a higher purposeâEUR"the purpose of glorifying our Lord through everything we do...including our buildings.
