i finished organic church by neil cole yesterday and i found it very challenging. i have to admit that the thought of a house church is very compelling. I don’t have any experience with churches that only operate out of homes. i do however have some experience with churches that operate often out of homes. they regularly incorporate homes into their times together. i would be interested to find out how well house churches age. it seems to me that they would work very well with younger ages but i don’t have any idea how they would do with older individuals. this is my lack of experience speaking here.
i’m now reading shane claiborne’s irresistible revolution. last year i went and spent a week with shane and his friends at the simple way. many of the stories within the book i heard then. i’ll write more concerning the book when i finish it. it’s enough to say at this point that it is very powerful … just like shane.
