Needing Each Other During Church

Eric Carpenter at A Pilgrim's Progress writes a short post about how we need each other when we assemble with the church.  We can all speak to each other during the church meeting for mutual edification.  I really don't have any experience with churches that do this, but after so many years of not having it, I certainly know what can happen when there is no mutual edification during the meeting.  Mutual edification is pushed back into a place where people need to scramble to look for other ways for it to happen.  So much so that it's possible for mutual edification to not happen at all.  I wonder what it would be like to have a church that engaged with each other the way that is spoken of in 1 Corinthians 11-14.  I hope to find out someday.
