THE CHURCH COMES HOME
I am intrigued lately with the notion of the House Church.
Even just discovered that there's one on my own street that's been meeting for the last 3 years.
I'm looking at several books right now too, recommended to me by Professor Scott Bartchy at UCLA.
"The Church Comes Home" by Robert and Julie Banks
"House Church and Mission" by Rober W. Gehring
Need to pick these up..and a few others by Justo L. Gonzalez.
What I love is the sense of simplicity and the return to the early church model of community, fellowship and service to others and the community as a first priority.
More on this later...
