It wasn’t too long ago… maybe 50-60 years…that the intention of the mainline Protestant church was to provide community. So folks would get together for worship, bridge club, youth group, and CWF to find their community. Their best friend sat in the pew next to them and their children played together.
The church is changing. That much is sure. But even the most seasoned...and the most youthful...pastors and leaders, don't have a clue what that looks like. So maybe it's time to define our intention. A new intention. A God intention. Then maybe the rest will fall into place.
Because as beautiful as this is...
It can't be ALL there is.
