Iâ€™ve been thinking about the church, and Iâ€™ve been trying to back it up in my mind where we only get together, period. No bible study, no time for prayer, no â€œworshipâ€ schedule. I picture Thanksgiving with the family. People talking over here, people laughing over there, people praying in the back. And then defining the assembly as that, just a family gathering. Canâ€™t each one bring a teaching, a song, a prayer in this scenario? Everyone is there to edify one another.
When the church gathers together, does the meeting have to be scheduled (whether that schedule is published or by habit)? Does everyone have to do the same thing at the same time, listen to the same person/people at the same time, sing the same songs at the same time?
Or, can the church meet together as Sol describers?
What do you think?
