Great reminder from Gloria Furman via The Gospel Coalition's Twitter account:
Gloria Furman: “We don’t gather at the church, we gather as the church.”
I believe that words are important. I often spend a few extra seconds to ensure that I choose the correct word for what I am trying to communicate. And I think that the one word that changes in the quote above is vitally important to understanding what it means to be a part of The Church.
The Church is the collection of believers around the world, not the buildings they meet in. We bring the Kingdom of God with us wherever we go. There is a gravity to thinking about our lives this way.
