Oh, Spriggy...

I'm chiming in a bit late, but just as enthused as the others!!! What an exciting start for you guys! God is truly amazing..!

You've got my wheels churning... my husband (who was ordained, but had to leave that church, due to having chosen me over their legalism), has been making noises about wanting to start our own church...!


I can't say I've been the most supportive wife in this realm! I've SEEN first-hand what folks can do to the "preacher's family"!

But he's been talking "home churches" for a while now... and it's starting to intrigue me. 'Specially since we can't yet find a church in this town (which is crawling with both churches and pubs!), that has the fullness of what we're hungry for: lively music (mixed with the music of the ages), real faith (not pretense), Spirit-expressions (without being emotionally shallow), going deep (not being sheep on puppet strings), daring to question status-quo (rather than going through the motions), enjoying Eucharist/communion weekly (as the early church did, so that the altar, not the pulpit, is the center of the church and service), and folks who refuse to live in a "Christian culture" (i.e., only read Christian literature, only watch Christian TV, only listen to Christian radio, in order to not get "world-cooties"!)... but who dare to be Christians IN culture, like Jesus did... meeting people where they are, accepting them AS they are, and letting the Holy Spirit, not a set of external rules, change their hearts, rather than just their surface behavior...

Haven't found that church yet...!

You've given me much to think about, without trying to...

Shalom, Dena
