The church is the people… but, space definately matters.
How many times have we heard comments about the church being the people… not the building. No doubt, I agree wholeheartedly, but buildings and sacred space matters.
Last weekend the Paducah Campus of Four Rivers worship gathering was displaced from our worship space into our fellowship hall. The boiler went down and is being replaced. So we will actually be displaced for several weeks.
Anyway, it created such a different total experience. We had a meal instead of music and the sermon time was more casual than normal… mostly because of the space. People were more relational… more fun was had by most…
How would you weigh in on this conversation?
