The Church is a Who?

I really appreciated this video from Rick at “The Blind Beggar” in a post called “the church: a who, not a what.”

(Apparently, Rick got the video from another blogger in a post called “What is the church?”)

(Or you can view the video directly from vimeo, where it’s called “When We Say Church.”)

My favorite part of the video is this: Several people speaking the following definition and description:

“The church is people… believing God… following Jesus… filled by the Spirit… loving each other… serving the city… changing the world.”

So many things would change if we really believed (by living) that the church is people.

    Wow. Powerful video.

    “So many things would change if we really believed (by living) that the church is people.” In the first century it turned the world upside down.

    You’re right.
