Historically Used In an Exclusive Sense, This Blog Aims to Explore What God's Up To Inside & Outside the Institutional Church

Lee Grady on the Last Decade

Lee Grady usually has something worth listening to. Here’s his view on the last decade:

The last 10 years weren’t just about terrorism and recession. Amid the storm clouds, God was working in profound ways.

We didn’t know what to call it—was it the ’00s?—yet we’ve just passed through quite a decade. We had natural disasters (the 2004 Asian tsunami, Hurricane Katrina in 2005), financial meltdowns (bank failures and 10 percent unemployment) and global conflict (9/11 and the war on terror). It brought doom and gloom on one hand and technological breakthroughs on the other. What a ride it has been.How has God been working during this tumultuous season? Here’s my list of seven megatrends that marked these last 10 years:

1. Third-World Christianity kept growing.

2. The digital revolution opened new doors for evangelism.

3. The global economic crisis didn’t stop the church.

4. As militant Islam increased, so did a backlash.

5. Spiritual hunger grew more intense.

6. The charismatic movement experienced a painful but needed purging.

7. A “healthy church” movement emerged.
