Topic: The Church (12/06/07)

TITLE: There's no Ceiling in this Church

Wake-Up! It's time for CHURCH!

These word echo throughout countless homes throughout the world. The idea of Church is now accompanied by images of early Sunday mornings with the family; one less day to sleep in.

Surely this isn't the approach everyone takes, but there is a good chance that you have felt this way at *least* one time in your church-going career.

But you know now that Church is more than an inconvenience to the sleeping schedule.

But did you also know that Church is more than a building? In fact, the Church has no walls, no ceiling, and no ground!

This is hard for some people to understand. Yet it is true, the Church is not a building for worship, instead, it refers to the commonality of those who are united through the spirit of Christ.

Denominations, buildings, pews...these are man-made items and institutions. Jesus built the church without wood or money. Jesus built his church through faith.

The Christian faith, despite it's innumerable varaitions, is still united in spirit by one fundamental beleif:

Jesus, the most righteous being ever, is the living son of God, and he died on a cross as atonement for the flaws of mankind.

This very notion is so powerful that it unites billions of people over our great planet. The Church is this unification, the Church is not confined by walls or men, but is inside every human being (even those who don't realize it).

The Church can't be confined. It flows like water, dripping its sweet satisfaction on those willing to seek it, quenching the entire soul of humanity.

Your title drew me in, liked your POV. Really liked the last paragraph. Keep it up!

Good point of view and discussion of the church. Your last paragraph tells me you've got more inside you--the art of wordcraft wanting to explode onto the page. Let it go. Don't hold back. Get a partner or someone to proof your work for punctuation or grammar. Good job! Christmas blessings! :)

There are really good thoughts here. I would suggest not starting a sentence with the word "but", unless it is conversation. I loved the title. Keep writing.

I like your conversational tone.

"It's" always means "it is" or "it has." If you're looking for the possessive word, you want "its" without the apostrophe.

Good title.

Great last line. And great idea. I really like it when a writer blows by small thoughts and tackles central issues like you have. The challenge when we do, however, is to make those grand central issues live and breathe. Your last line does that. Agree with prior comment. You have more in there, don't you?
