Topherspoon has been in a funk. The lack of comments on TTSM suggest Topherspoon's readers may be in a funk too. Topherspoon is trying to answer alot of hard questions, many only he can answer. Topherspoon is starting some hypothetical research about churches. Topherspoon would love to hear your input.
For my entire life I have attended churches that have "Assembly" in their name. If you were to name a church what would you name it? An "Assembly", a "Fellowship", or simply a "Church"? Would you be a "Center"? Would you include regional distinctives? denominational distinctives? How bout biblical or historical references? Would you use the word "Christian"? Or be something abstract like a bridge, a grove, a river, a porch, or a shoe?
How important is nomenclature to the unchurched, unreached?
