Minor Rant Warning
The following statements could be put in a much more positive way that doesn't sound so judgmental, but to be honest, arguments over semantics are pretty much impossible to get around and so I figure I might as well just drop the gauntlet having faith that my dear readers know I am merely hoping to get a conversation moving along. So, with that in mind:
1. Please don't say "church" when you are referring to a congregation, building or a 1.5 hr gathering - it confuses folk, and makes it easy to pass the buck.
2. It would be great to have the term "we want(ed) to DO church differently" removed from common use - just say you want(ed) to live differently.
Questions for further reflection (hint - use the comments, and one is a trick question):
1. What words would you strike/return to their dictionary definition?
2. How useful is a conversation about semantics which takes place over the internet?
