This morning I had breakfast in the regular place I eat Friday breakfasts with a friend. And as we sat there I saw all the regulars come in to get their morning started. Some prostitutes, some alcoholics and a few addicts, along with a couple of others with their addictions better disguised. Ah, life in Prince Albert, I thought. Then I thought this might be a place Jesus would do breakfast in, right up his alley kind of thing.
And then I got to thinking about church and all that it means these days.
There are so many different looks for churches, from India to Indiana, from new to old, formal to informal, High and Low, in and out, and on and on.
And I thought, what does church look like for you?
Not what do you love or hate about church, but more along the lines of if you were to sit down and create "CHURCH" whatever that means for you, what would it look like?
Would you meet together?
Where would you meet?
Would you wear matching T-shirts?
Would you be eating or drinking? And what?
Would there be a dance floor?
Would there be organization of any kind?
How would people know you were a church?
Who would be a part of it?
Are you sitting or standing, what are you wearing, what are you smelling or looking at?
Are those even the right questions?
I'm just thinking out loud here. We need many more churches than there are, and we need different kinds of churches than the ones there already are.
So tell me, what does a church you would like to attend, look like?
Also, then maybe include your age. You may answer Anonymously if you like.
