I found the following from Scot McKnight's blog. Is the church about community? Does it have the courage to be counter-cultural?
(Click here for the post.)
"[The] church is and will remain at the epicenter of Christian community, it is the community, essential for worship, for sacrament, for fellowship, but the work of the church, the work of the pastor, is not to lead or cast vision or draw people in, but to equip, disciple, and send Christians out."
"We need to be counter cultural in approach to the church as committed community and as the body of Christ."
What do you think?
