Compassion UNLEASHED Conference
Artistic NOTE TAKING
Loved learning today from Dan Kimball. That guy speaks my language.
He talked about our "church speak." We can't GO TO CHURCH. We ARE THE CHURCH.
The church is NOT A PLACE. If we are not specific about this we are inadvertently teaching a wrong theology. Too many people think Church is just on Sunday--because too many Christians act like it is. We must be the church always--God's people called out to live His mission!
He (Kimball) laughed about teaching his kids to say, "On Sunday we go to the Church's building." That's what I want to do. I don't want to argue over semantics, but I think it is really important to take the extra 7 seconds and clarify what we mean, not just for ourselves, but for any one listening to us.
The kids nursery rhyme needs to be changed:
This is a building and this is a steeple, bust open the doors cause the CHURCH IS THE PEOPLE!
