I've been spending time reading Dan Kimball's book They like Jesus but not the Church which I'm really finding interesting. I've blogged a little more in depth about this on my blog. What I really wanted to ask here is what do you think of when you hear the words Church, Christian and Jesus?
If I’m honest when I hear the word church, I automatically think of bricks and mortar, not the body of Christ. Christian makes me think of a follower of Christ, but I always wonder in what sense they follow him. Jesus, what can I say? Absolutely amazing guy, Wow - I can’t take in all of the mercy and grace. My lord.
It would be great to hear what some of your thoughts are. Also if you are interested Dan has an article on the subject in the latest issue of outreach magazine
