Remember the old childhood hand play game where you demonstrate and recite,
“Here’s the church and here’s the steeple. Open the doors and see all the people!”
While listening to this interview I was reminded that the people are the church - not the building.
When a handful of folks gather together to embrace the opportunity of focusing on God, no matter where they are or how many are in attendance, I believe genuine church is taking place. As Marcy mentions in the interview, time spent together this way can be a perfect way to share a bite to eat and build friendships to create a sense of belonging and community.
Thank you, Northland, for reaching way beyond the walls of your gorgeous building and into the hearts and homes of anyone who hungers for spiritual growth.
