Part 2 – Church?

Disclaimers:   I respect my pastor friends that want to preserve the local church.  Most of them agree, it needs to be re imagined.  That’s what I think i’m doing here – imagining. This series of blogs is about what I’m thinking about.  I think it’s good to think through things occasionally, especially in times like…
