Church on the Edge

Church on the EdgeSome notes and quotes from Church on the Edge:

“If Church is not a building you go to but a community you belong to, then when and how that meets can have no boundaries.”

“If we assume everyone who comes to Church ‘ought to know what to do’, we shouldn’t be surprised if they don’t stay long.”

  1. The interesting question for me is not only whether the MEETING of the community has boundaries, but whether the Community ITSELF has boundaries. And I’m very attracted to the idea that it doesn’t/shouldn’t. That doesn’t mean that the community doesn’t stand for anything, but that it is defined by the strong outward flow from the centre (the wind of the Spirit?) rather than by patrolling the edges to divide ‘ins’ and ‘outs’.
