Twin Tubs
A Parable

A Parable

 

Mrs Smith loved her twin tub (for those who are younger, that’s the washing machine people used before automatic ones). It had served her for years, even if it did take a whole morning each week to use it. Of course, her daughter thought she was mad, “automatics do the job much better Mum,” she said, “and if you get a washer dryer you won’t even have to iron!” Mrs Smith didn’t really like change. If it works, why change it? It was like the telephone; everyone now had these new mobiles. What was wrong with telephone boxes and pen and paper? The problem was that her twin tub, though it still did the job, didn’t work as well as it had. The repair man just said “Sorry, madam. I can’t get the parts these days.” Yes, she thought. The world had changed. So much of what used to work no longer applied today. She looked at the twin tub. It had served her well, but maybe it was time to join the modern world and buy an automatic…..

 

How does this apply to our church life together? Do we hold on to the things that are no longer relevant to our mission in today’s society? How willing are we to change?
