Food For Thought: Simple Church Sampling
Every week here at Pursuing Glory I try to bring together the best posts I’ve found that will equip the end-times church to operate in her God-ordained destiny. These are the best blogs, articles, books and other resources related to our purpose here at this site. Feel free to visit, comment, and make use of the resources found at each site.
This week’s posts mostly focus on house churches (organic/simple churches). They represent a wide assortment of people who have different perspectives, but all of them have been practicing simple, reproducible, Christ-centered meetings for years. They’ve been my food for thought as I’ve been preparing to write a “Basic Introduction” post on house churches. I hope you enjoy!
Simple Church and Global Missions
The prevailing thought is that simple, organic churches tend not to be very engaged in missions, especially globally. I’ve found this incredibly inaccurate in our own experience, though I think it greatly depends on who makes up each church. (Posted at The Assembling of the Church)
Frank at Reimagining Church shares an excerpt from his book, From Eternity to Here, where he looks at the reality of Christ’s Lordship in the Church as a foundation for understanding how the Church is built. This is must reading for every church planter.
Maurice Smith at Parousia Network Cyber Cafe shares his perspective of where God is leading those in the organic house church movement. This is long post, but there are some keen insights about what the future may look like.
Guy Muse at The M Blog shares a true story about a church planter from Ecuador, that while true, is also a parable for those of us in the organic house church movement.
