A different vision for what the church is

” I wonder if our vision of the church is simply to sterile. Perhaps the church is more like an Army field hospital than a club or clinic. A place where the wounded and dying come grossly disfigured. Where blood, screams, and tears are not uncommon, but where mercy, compassion and understanding are also commonplace. A place where in the backdrop of the worst of the world; rest, solace, and respite are given. How different would it be if we saw the sanctuary as a triage center rather than a waiting room?”

  1. Not a bad corrective for the best-behavior social club model of church.

    I hope you are alright. I’ve tried to reach you several times over the last month.
