Friday at L'Abri

Friday (Last week) Jim and I had a someone watch the boys while we both went to a formal lunch.  It was nice to take part in a discussion together.  The question that a student raised was about church.  And, of course, with a broad question, more questions arose than were answered.   What is church? Is the Christian church an institution or are there other ways of doing church? Why do we go to church? What is the church for?  Does 'efficiancy' sometimes get in the way of what we want to accomplish at church?   Should we model our church after the early church? Is the mega-church an inherently flawed model?  Why do we have doctrines and denominations? What should our goals for church be?... you get the picture!  It was a fun discussion leading to so many thoughts.

And, as for the rest of the day... I give it to you in pictures.

Oh my, so many good questions--how thankful I am that God is omniscient and at the end of the day, he still knows all even when we don't. May we ever grow in wisdom so that we can make our church as close to His will as it can be (if there truly is a better and lesser church models). And hurray for all those pictures. I liked seeing a glimpse of the students and loved the picture of Jonah looking up from reading!
