Whether you like it, love it, fear it or loathe it, the dream below is representative of many in a generation raised in our churches who have stuck it out but are struggling to live out their faith in our current setting.
What follows in the post it a list of attributes of the church this young minister wants to lead. Definitely go read the full thing, but I’ll pick out a few:
- There is no building, but the foundation is the love of Christ
- There is no pulpit, but Scripture is opened and taught in living rooms, coffee shops, bars and parks
- Ethnic diversity is the norm
- No topic off the table for discussion--a "safe place" for any issue
