Let The Parish Thrive And The Consumer Church Perish
In honor of Throwback Thursday, we are remembering a post from June in which a vision for local gatherings of believers takes the place of larger consumer-oriented gatherings that we are used to.
A movement is growing that will radically shift this generation’s understanding of that perennially elusive word: church. Oddly enough, if you go looking for this movement on a Sunday morning you’ll probably come up empty. Thousands of Christians are reclaiming the ancient idea of the “parish” and weaving together a shared life in the place they call home.
