Learning to Be Church

Keith over at Under the Acacias has an outstanding post on figuring out how do be the Church in a difficult cultural context. He links it to the emerging church of the West, but I think it ought to be applicable to every church everywhere. I was in awe of the wisdom learned and shared here. I've really struggled with the "Sunday morning" version of Christianity that is prevalent in the West. The idea of time commitments to a location (the church building) makes it tough to be relational, whether that's with other believers or with neighbors who need to know Christ. I like what Keith has done in this situation. Makes me think of my good friend Gary and Bridge Ministries here in Rockford.
