Routine v. Novelty

Routines help us to know what to expect. They give us a sense of stability and normalcy.

Novelty is the unexpected, it gives us a sense of change and progress.

Neither novelty nor routine are good in themselves. Both have value and meaning for a church. Without routine there would be chaos, but without novelty there is boredom.

The key is finding balance between novelty and routine so that there is a sense of stability with progress, change with normalcy.

How do you find balance?
