Dougie fresh...

Doug Pagitt is a pastor of a church called Solomon's Porch in Minnesota and after reading what he says about church, I like him a little more. From se7en questions on Ginkworld:

"We offer ways for people to meet and spend time together. WE have many meals, and outings. We try to treat people like adults and not suppose that we need to be their match makers. We also view spiritual formation has happening in these relationships and not through education. So we resist the temptation to add curriculum into our get together. There are times that we meet for Bible discussion groups, book clubs, movie clubs, day long seminars, but we are not insisting that people need to be talking about something in particular for the time to valuable."

I might not agree with the guy wholly, but I love it when he talks about community.
