Many hairstyles ago I stood in front of the church that my husband pastored and shared a thought that burned so deep inside me I couldn’t help but breathe it out loud. With a shaking that reached from my platinum blonde hair to my painted toes I asked the congregation, “What would happen if you didn’t have a church to attend anymore?” It was not an announcement of the church closing its doors; but more a sense of the burden on my heart that we are all too comfortable sitting in the church.
What would you do if there were no church to get ready for on Sunday? What if there were no Bible studies or MOPS groups?
How would your family navigate their Christianity without the church building? Do you feel equipped to teach the truths of the Bible to your children?
Obviously we don’t have to navigate the road of Christianity alone, we have churches and groups and the freedom to assemble, and for this I am grateful. But I still wonder, what if?
I believe that God wants a relationship with us that is not dependent on church attendance.
I'd love to hear your thoughts...
What If Your Church Didn't Exist Anymore?
