In the mean time, the most popular topic of choice so far has been the “21st Century Church.” This is, of course a broad topic, and I’m interested in seeing where it ends up.  One way I thought we could approach this would be to read what several churches or religious institutions say they believe the goal of the church is, and to compare similarities and differences…but more importantly, to compare what we see to the early church described in the book of Acts in the New Testament (it is a Bible study, after all!).

See you Wednesday!
