If you had to pick four adjectives to describe this hypothetical church, which would you choose? (Four is just a number that fits well on the back of a bulletin). When I first arrived at the church I am a part of, the back of our bulletin said...
I though it was terribly divise launguage. Like we were unintionally saying, "you better agree with a certain set of beliefs or we don't want you. And you better be witnessing all the time. And if you don't speak in tongues, you're not really save, and if you're single this probably isn't the place for you." No one meant to say these things and these terms were probably helpful twenty years ago (maybe), but I was very happy when it changed. It now Reads...
These words are then followed by some helpful, classic, creedal language that I think is much more inclusive, helpful, and mainstream. However, these words really aren't adjectives. I guess I would like them to have a little bit more emergentesque descriptions. Maybe...
Does that describe a church you would like to attend? Just Curious? Any thoughts out there?
