How You Know You’ve Been Part of a House Church For A While…

We’ve just crossed over the two-year mark with our house church here in Eastern Iowa.  Ariel, our daughter was born just a few months before we started meeting together as a church and has grown up largely outside of what is conventianlly understood as a “church.”   So how do we know we’ve been in a house church for a while?

The other day my wife was driving through a part of our neighborhood we don’t normally drive by with our kids in the backseat.  She passed by a traditional church building with a tall white steeple that looks like it was built in the 30’s or 40’s.  My daughter, who is obsessed with everything related to princesses, shouts out, “Look, mommy, CASTLE!”
