This is a re-post of the 12th part of my ongoing blog series, Re-Thinking The Sunday Church Service. This series appeared in late 2008 to early 2009. For a brief explanation, click here.
Quite often in the typical church service we're admonished to check our worldly cares and problems at the door on Sunday morning. This is supposedly so we can worship God with more focus and purity. But more than this it guarantees that our cares and problems will greet us at the door on the way out unchanged.
Wouldn't it be great if there could be some measure of edification from other members of the body while the church meets that could be more tailored to people's needs?
