According to a consultant’s report obtained by the Detroit Free Press, The Detroit Water and Sewage Department employs a horseshoer at a cost to the city of nearly $60,000 per year in salary and benefits. “According to the official job description—not updated since 1967—the DWSD horseshoer is required to ‘shoe horses and to do general blacksmith work.’” There is one small problem. No one can even remember the last time the city owned a horse.
In today’s world, and in the church, change is coming at us quickly. We need to work hard to meet the challenge of a changing world and not let the times catch our churches with the equivalent of a horseshoer. –Jim L. Wilson and Rodger Russell
