I don’t want to let the “church” ever become so contained and managed in my life. I don’t want to think of “church” in terms of 8-12 on Sunday mornings or that plus 4-7 Community Group time. That’s raping the essence of church right out from the inside. Being “the church” should permeate every square inch of my life. I don’t want to go, get my fill, call it good. I want to invest. Build relationships. Spontaneously get together. Naturally build an organic community that literally carries each other’s burdens in a meaningful and effective way.
There’s my little rant for the night. And here’s my little confession. I can put church in a box anytime I want, but I don’t want to! But, I find myself doing exactly what I don’t want to do. In my mental planner, recently I programmed church in for Wednesday nights and Sundays. I’m working really hard to get out of this mindset in order to embrace and live out my desires and passions.
