Church (should not)-John Chuchman

cta2bpic1

Permission given to post in full

Church

should not be about

providing the answers

to people’s faith questions,

instead encouraging

and helping them

to live the questions.

 

Church

should not be about

a building

or a hierarchical organization,

instead connoting

a simple gathering (ecclesia)

of people

seeking spiritual growth

and nourishment.

 

Church

should not be

a tower of babel

requiring everyone

to do things the same way,

instead celebrating creation’s diversity,

learning from others’ varied life experiences.

Church

should be

less about externals

(signs of piety, etc.)

and

more about internals

(spiritual growth and transformation).

Church

should be less about earning the next life

and more about finding Joy in this life.

Church

should not exist

for the benefit of its clergy,

instead striving to help

any and all needy of the world.

Church

should be

about the simple life and teachings of Jesus,

less about

a regal Christ.

We are Church

or

should be.
