Run away church…
“…and a little child shall lead them.” Isaiah 11:6
Maybe there is something to learn from this young generation about Church. When I was a kid I didn’t like going to church but I did like seeing my friends there. I remember the old man who used to give all us kids a stick of gum every Sunday. Isn’t it funny the things that matter to us. For me, the greatest memories of my childhood church experience had to do with the relationships I valued and the people who showed value to me.
It’s all about the relationships. God living in us, us living in relationship with Him, us living in relationship with each other revealing the relationship with Him. So as I tell the church I have the privilege of leading and loving, “when we leave the building, the church has left the building because we are the church, not the building.”
