16 Feb Thread #51: Christian community
Does your Christianity have a rectangular or circular shape? Early disciples assumed their place in the circle of a small group community. Everyone interacted, knew and was known by the others. That’s how it was for 300 years. Then came the church building…shaped in a rectangle. Stiff pews, face forward. Watch the show. Listen to the sermon. Money in the offering please. Let’s go back to Jesus idea of what his radical agape love movement was all about. Maybe it can help us to bring some body life into our modern forms of church.
