A few nights ago our team got together. We sat around on couches in our living room.
We caught up on things that are going on in each of our lives.
We examined passages of Scripture together.
We were greatly encouraged as we shared different visions and prophecies that God has been giving.
We prayed together.
We took communion together.
We encouraged, prayed for, and prophesied over a team member who was trying to discern God’s will in difficult personal circumstances. God gave her direction and she has since acted according to it.
Our time together didn’t incorporate every possible expression of church life, and it’s not nearly the only model for church. It is church, though. Church is not a building, and it’s not a meeting – it’s who we are. I love the edification that takes place when we meet together with our church family.
