Congregations and churches, like living organisms, experience cyclical and predictable seasons. In a manner of speaking, they are given birth in the spring, flourish in the summer, fade in the fall and die in the winter.
However, there are exceptions to this understanding. Living organisms are created by God but the Church, while created by God, has something much more. The Church is filled with God’s Spirit, the same Spirit that raised Jesus Christ from the grave. And because of the presence and power of the Holy Spirit, churches need not die or retire. Instead, they may experience resurrection through renewal through a re-launch.
