Get Out of Church

Graeme Smith has posted a really interesting piece called The Great Escape at TheRubicon this week.

And I quote....

We need to throw off the shackles of the mindset that sees Church as a specific place, towards a mindset that sees the Church as a community of believers. We must turn aside from evaluating our missional effectiveness in terms of numbers through the doors of our buildings, and instead look at the way lives are being touched. Most important, we must begin to see that each of us who claims to be a Christian is part of the Church, and we must start acting like it.

Check out the full article to get the skinny.

Thanks for the encouragement guys.

I think the understanding of this is growing, yet it is not going to be easy to break free from the shackles that are bound so tight.
