How the church has communicated, taught and grew over the years

What 

I grew up in a small town in northeastern Canada and attended church in a small mostly dark church with hard wooden pews. 

When I was 20 I moved to Southern California and started attending a non denominational church that was bright, had oft seats, encouraged having a bible open, to take notes that had contemporary praise music. It was so innovative we had overhead screens and I took notes on a Palm Pilot. 

When my parents visited they were puzzled but they did agree Jesus was still the focus. 

When a “church” wasn’t a building 

These early believers did not have church buildings to meet in. They met mostly in homes. The first church buildings did not start to appear until the early 200s.

So What 

The message is the same, but the medium is changing

The future is here, but it is not evenly distributed
