I was glad when they said to me, “Let us go to the house of the LORD.” Psalm 122:1 I remember as a child all of the preparations that were made for Sunday morning. Church was a safe enjoyable place. Today, for me it’s still a safe enjoyable place. Yet for some it is anything but safe, anything but enjoyable. Perhaps what we need is a new definition for church. Some have said that church is the people but I believe that it goes a bit deeper. I think church is the relationships we have with one another. The relationships in which we honor God by how we love, care and encourage one another in faith. Any place or situation where this is happening, no walls are necessary.
Matthew 18:20 …where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.
