church

by Linda W on Oct 10, 2013

well-done story that encourages believers to recognize "church" as everywhere that believers gather (even 2 or 3, in His Name), not just a building and an address.

can be very helpful to share with someone who is hurting, AFTER they have been really befriended by someone who's been there"/"

Going to Church or Being the Church?

by Dabear on Dec 10, 2009

What if the apostle John were still around today, sharing his insights with God's people? "Are you John?" Jake Colsen asks. "John, the disciple of Jesus? Well, you already know my name is John, and I do claim to be a disciple of his." "But are you THE John?" "Why is that so important to you?" "If you are, I've got some things I want to ask you." "And if I'm not?" "I'd want to talk to you anyway, I guess." Jake Colsen is a fictional amalgamation of Wayne Jacobsen and Dave Coleman, both of whom have extensive experience with formal church ministry. The nature of the institutional church, and the more elusive church which is the Body of Christ, are explored through a series of encounters between Jake and the mysterious John, who seems to know Jesus intimately. North American society is experiencing a growing movement of divine discontentment, seeking the rebirth of the Christian church as loving community rather than a bastion of propriety in Shouldville. This story gives a tantalizing hint of what might be. Warning: Taking this book seriously could cause personal transformation. Read at your own risk

Relationship and Your Neighbor

If you enjoyed "The Shack" you will enjoy "So You Don't Want to Go to Church Any More". "The Shack" is about relationship with God; "So You Don't Want to Go to Church Any More" is about relationship with our neighbors. If you have ever been bruised by religion this story is for you. It breaks the corporate mold of religion and puts us pilgrims back on the right path.
