My friend Eric from “A Pilgrim’s Progress” has been writing articles about house church for the last several weeks. He has now published a list of all of his articles in a post called “House Church – Summary.”
The articles are all very well written, and both the articles and the comments are well worth reading and pondering.
As you probably know, “I’m not a house church proponent.” (Jeremy, you already knew this.) However, this doesn’t mean that I am anti-“house church.” In fact, I think it is beneficial for the church to meet in homes. (Then, why am I not a house church proponent? If you don’t know, and are interested, then read that article.)
Many of the points in Eric’s articles can be part of an organic, simple church that does not necessarily meet in a home. But, I think all churches (whether more organic or more institutional) should investigate and struggle with the concepts and ideas that Eric writes about.
Great job, Eric! Keep up the good writing (whenever your new job allows)!
