After having set the bar for what it means to be an attractional seeker sensitive model church Willow Creek is shifting its weekend emphasis from primarily seeker sensitive to believer centered.
Of course no one is sure what exactly this means and if Sunday will now look like Wednesday night services, but a recent article from Christianity Today attempts to get at the rationale for the change.
Honestly, I've been to both and I think its probably a good change. The biggest difference that I saw in my few times there was that Sunday mornings was more of a experiential worship wherein participants "watched" the action of worship leaders and Wednesdays was much more participatory wherein participants were invited to take part in what was being lead on the platform. Also the Scriptural diet on Sundays was a much lighter fare than Wednesday nights.
All in all I think it's a smart move. Although I'm not really sure what the difference will pragmatically mean for their Sunday gatherings. I give them credit for doing a pretty authentic self evaluation and then actually making some decisions based on the results that they faced.
Way to go Willow!
