Okay, I was driving and thinking. That’s a dangerous combination.
I was thinking about the last post where I started talking about our new statement
(notice that I’m avoiding talking about what kind of statement? We have a passion statement, but I always hate falling onto the vision,mission,purpose statement debates).
Anyway, if we are a biblically-based community, what does that mean? How does it distinguish our church from any other kind of community?
As a way of thinking about that, I guess we plug other words into that statement.
What difference would it make to be a geographic-based community (patterns of interaction are based on where you travel, neighborhood infrastructure), a financial-based community (profitability, economic impact, means of production), an interest-based community (the nature of the object of interest).
If we are biblically-based, it means that we look to the Bible to sort out what to do, how to act.
I think I’m tired. So if you can help me think, please do so. How are communities different according to their basis of formation?
