Moving From Churchy World To Authentic Community
I resigned as a staff pastor and went on a rather long journey. I was searching for the type of genuine spiritual community found in the Bible: one without unnecessary church buildings, institutional hierarchy or imaginary titles. After all, the church Paul describes as the Body of Christ has many unique members but there is clearly a single authority, a single Head to this Body, which is Christ.
Thankfully I now have firsthand experience living in community with other believers who get to fully function in their callings during church gatherings.
