Spot on

RLP gives the best definition of "church" I've ever heard or read, although I have experienced community of this ilk at Snohomish First Presbyterian since I was a wee child. I'd be a burned out, washed up, disenfranchised follower of The Way if this were not the case.

Let me tell you what church is supposed to be. It is supposed to be a community of friends who have walked together through the good times and the hard times of life so that their shared history is more powerful than their differences. It is a gathering of spiritual seekers who do not demand exact conformity in every doctrine, but acknowledge a shared commitment to Christ and fidelity in living. There is real trust and love. Mistakes are made and people are forgiven. And you feel safe. Safe enough to laugh or cry.

Amen.
