#book Ministry in the Digital Age: Strategies and Best Practices for a Post-Website World by Dave Bourgeois. This quote is an excerpt from the book’s introduction:

Even the logos and colors we use must keep up with the latest styles; what previously looked cutting edge may now convey the message that your ministry doesn’t ‘get it’ anymore.
