Why Church & A New Reformation?

Posted in Religion, Thoughts on Christianity with tags , on October 29, 2008 by themousas

Loving the responses everyone’s given so far to why they attend a religious gathering. The basis for the question has been my own meanderings concerning the religious culture insiders see verse outsiders observe (I know a little confusing) I’m still working through some thoughts but will commit something to print type soon. In the meantime here’s some homework for you…

  • You should be following this–The r(e)formation Blog: Something is happening in Berlin and Wittenberg, Germany at the end of October 2008. Could this be the second reformation? The world’s leading Christian thinkers will be gathering to address the unsettled account of the first reformation.
  • Here are my other post about to bring you up to speed on my “church meanderings”
  • First this video, and this question
  • And drop by this guy’s site and leave a comment to his similar question about the church. I’ll be referencing back to it in my thoughts
 And why not answer this poll question (it’s a new feature I’m trying)

Religion: Please Comment

I’ve never asked for this just out right, but I really want you to use the comment function and tell me:

Why do you/don’t you go to a religious gathering (church)?

Leave your name or don’t…your choice. I’m more interested in the comments.

Working 9-5 for Ameriprise Financial has me watching a lot of this…

I talk with individuals every day who have concerns about the economy and their investments. Today however, I checked into what I would call the future economy of the church…Catalyst Conference.  Though I’m not there in person this year, I’m devouring all I can from blogs and Catalyst backstage. It was a much needed break; however, I do wish my days were spent talking with others about the Kingdom rather than finances…patience is not always easy for me. Check out the links and get your fill!
