I was having a conversation yesterday that I thought you would all like to join. We were talking about really good times in home groups where there is deep sharing and accountability. One person mentioned that it would ruin that to have visitors because the regulars would feel less comfortable sharing with new-comers in the group. But this deep community and sharing is the very thing that un-churched people can't get anywhere else. Sunday morning service can be deep but more often it is a time that can be easily ignored (that is to say that if you want to it can be deep and meaningful time, but if you don't know/care then it is just another production).
There is a paradox: Christian community functions best without un-churched people, but it is that very community that un-churched people need/crave.
Sorry, no answers today, just questions.
