so, this afternoon, inspired by our earlier conversation, I started talking with a couple of brothers about another question related to defining the church – or answering the question “what is a church”.
If five people are regularly in the same place at the same time once per week, but those five people never see one another, much less speak to or interact with one another, are those five people church together? What would your answer be if the place was a restaurant? What would your answer be if the place was a building set aside for church meetings? Would your answer be different in those two situations? Why or why not?
