What makes a church up? Again and again I was confronted with that question. What is a "minimal church", but still a church, maybe even a mature one? What has to be, what may be, what do we just think it has to be? During many hours travelling by train I finished the book I got from CA last summer: “From the ground up” by Scott Horrell. It presents a Brazilian study to that question. They say the majority of activities in churches revolve around four central images
- The church building or temple
- Sunday, the Christian Sabbath
- The worship service
- The full time pastor
Hmm, is that the way it's supposed to be? Is that the way you think about church? Check out what Marcus has to say.
