We had a lively discussion about this article at our Saturday morning community fellowship meeting Saturday morning at the El Paisano Restaurant. I had asked Roland (pastor at Canaan Trail Baptist to comment on it, and he pointed out that it sounds like none of the ecclesia is within the traditional church according to the author. We know that the ecclesia is the people of God and they can be found anywhere that God would have them, so good point, Roland.
Overall, I think the author has some really good points, but I felt that he's expressing some frustration and even anger that is probably not helping to confirm his ideas. Still, it's wonderful to be able to come together as the BOC (body of Christ) and have some quality dialog about some very real issues that we face as HIS church.
