Part of my search for the mystic is a quest to reconstruct meaningful ways to be and build kingdom community in this new world. To do this I think we need to experience a
- Reversal of Kingdom Capital
- Reversal of the Clergy/Laity spectrum
- Reversal of the Time/Space continuum
- Colonization of Cyberspace Posting threads and blogging
I’ve got more thinking to share on each of these and some ideas on a couple of new categories as well. Stay tuned. But I want to make sure that we stay true to the essentials. So today’s question is:
What is a church?
Is two or three gathered by the calling of Christ to reach people (Mission), who share the Lord’s Supper (Missional Community), and baptize converts (Missional Activity) a church? What more than this is necessary? Or is this too much? Or is it something other than these elements?
What do you think?
Blog posts of note…
For an outstanding application of what we discussed on my post Fiesta for God , check out Kristi Cornwell’s post titled, The Party . Her story comes complete with a blazing fire, a barn and line dancing.
Ladies, hats off to you. Excellent stuff. Thanks for leading the way.
