IKEA, Sunday Mornings, and the Telling of Tales

Posted by on Mar 31, 2009

After visiting the IKEA in North York a few weeks ago, I had to ask, “What does IKEA have that we—the church—don’t have?” This question is at once tongue-in-cheek and a sober one. On the tongue-in-cheek end of things, they’ve obviously got more comfortable seats, a great deal of marketing geniuses (have you seen their commercials?!) and a multi-million dollar advertising budget! On the sober end of things, IKEA, as a culture, presents and represents a challenge to the church.
