Culturally Relevant Church?

Relevant means to connect with the matter in hand
Culture - a particular form or stage of civilization, as that of a certain nation or period: Greek culture
the quality in a person or society that arises from a concern for what is regarded as excellent in arts, letters, manners, scholarly, pursuits, etc.

In the church we have taken it to mean that we have to be high tech, lights, camera, crazy music, cool haircuts, and trendy clothes... if that is pertinent to your culture then cool, but to do those things as a church doesn't mean you are being culturally relevant

Understand -- churches and ministries have to have a grasp on the culture they are trying to effect. The area in which they live, what people are like, what they believe, what they love to do, what they are attracted to. How they make their livings, what they do for entertainment. What their needs and wants are. How they communicate.
