I'm a new Sunday School Superintendant taking bold steps in changing our SS program to WoRM. I've bought books, gathered information, distributed it to the teachers, trained myself and am trying to prepare for the meeting on Sunday. I was wondering how should I respond to the suggestion of "Let's try it until December and if it doesn't work then we'll think of something else.".
How long should a church give this model? 6 months? A year? I'm all for adopting it and making it work, but others want a back door and I'm afraid if there is a back door, then the back door is back to the old ways. If we give ourselve an "out", the tendancy is to not work as hard or to commit.
