Don't go, be

Loving stops leaving is a new post from Jeff Noble that's worth a read. Too often we say the church is the people and then we do church like it's an institution. Jeff's call to be the church is of course not new, but it is always timely to remember.

Perhaps the simplicity of "Don't go to church, be the church" surpasses all the clever mission statements that churches spend hours developing without ever changing the ethos of the church. If we could embed this simple principle in our churches, what might we become?
