Building Community for People Alone in the City - When Your Heart Desire is a Relational Church
September 9, 2011
How in the world can people be together AND very alone? We live in a lonely age, a very lonely age. But what does this mean for the church? Shall we build a Mega church? Will the slotted small-groups that last for 6 months help us here? What about the $200 per hour "biblical counselors?" You can find groups who pretend to hold on to the same set of 197 propositions. You can find programs and slots, transience and unresolved conflicts, everywhere. But what if you are wanting to see a cross-generational church, where grandparents worship in the same church with their great grant children? In an age where relationships are dying a horrible death, there are some who are coming together who are committed to this vision! It may be restorative to the vision of church in the 21st century! The death of truth with the modern church always parallels the death of relationships. Pastor Steve Walker speaks to his doctoral dissertation on the topic of authentic community, on this edition of Generations.
