I was having a conversation with some new friends yesterday in Boise ID.
We got talking about The Church.
A. Because I love talking about The Church.
B. Because there is SO much unrest in what actually “The Church” means.

People place words before church like…
Postmodern
Experiential
House
Mega
and so on…

I think this severely limits the work of Christ and constrains a certain fellowship to a tight set of boundaries.
So I have a SIMPLE question.
What does it take for something to be called “THE CHURCH”
Sunday mornings?
A “pastor”?
A youth group?
A choir?
Sunday School?
A meeting place?
A sweet logo?

Can a church be a few people in an office who don’t ever gather for “bible study” but know each other are there and care for each other?
Can a church be 9 kids in a sandbox who are digging for gold and when one kid gets sand in their eye the other 8 help get it out?
