What I Should Have Said…

Have you ever had one of those conversations where you look back and think it would have been so cool if I would have responded with…?  I remember one, and I wish it went something like…

Person: So how big is your church?

Me: Huge, thousands upon thousands; ten thousand times ten thousand.

Person: Which denomination is it?

Me: It’s not really a denomination.  It was started as a movement to reveal God to the world and it’s still going.

Person: Oh, is it one of those new age religions by one of those new popular guys who wrote a best selling book?

Me: No, it’s had the same leader since it started, and He wrote THE best selling book of all time.

Person: Really? How long has it been around?

Me: Pretty long, about two thousand years.

Person: Seriously? So what time do you guys meet on Sundays?

Me: We don’t just meet on Sundays.  We meet every day in homes, schools, workplaces, neighborhoods, communities, gyms, in public and in hiding in places all over the globe.  We meet anywhere and everywhere that we can share and show the love of Jesus Christ through our lives, our joys, our troubles and our tragedies.  We celebrate God every day in every way.

Person: Really? So what’s it called?

Me: The Church.

Not the traditional church, not the contemporary church, not the liberal church, not the conservative church, not the black church, the white church, the Asian or Hispanic church, not the missional church, not the Gen-X church, not the post-modern church, not the evangelical church, not the pre-trib, mid-trib, or post trib church, not the Calvinism or Arminianism church, not the multi-site church, not the mega church.

Just simply the Church…God started it and it’s still going!
