Bloggers meet up
So we had a bloggers meet up yesterday! Jason, Sarah and our family had a great time together having lunch. We were expecting a few others, but for different reasons they couldn't make it.
I'm feeling more and more at church here blogging than physically in a church building. We get to know people in a deeper way, on a regular basis, and we can encourage each other online and fellowship with each other. And we even get to meet each other sometime! More uniquely, it's not a place where thousands of people listen to one or two preachers preach week after week, but a place where everyone's free to speak up for themselves and give their own opinions and share their unique giftings and insights. I think it's really a good way of being church as a kind of complementary form to the traditional church.
Believe me, I'm not trying to put the traditional church down. I believe in the corporate annointing that's in the big church. But sometimes I think something's missing in the big church, especially in the western world. Coming from the background of Chinese underground church, I know there's huge potential in every believer as an effective minister, and somehow I find that individual vitality is compromised in a big church. But blogging can be such a compensation for that. You can be as much of yourself as you want to be.
Thanks Happy, I think your comment has started my ranting mood here.
