    Hi @Moriah's Song - Just found this on my Facebook page and thought it would interest you. Worth a new thread.

    MY NEW ERA CRY...

    Having done attractional church for decades, I’m finally done with attractional church, anyone else?!

    Others may be called to build using this method, but for me, it doesn’t go DEEP enough spiritually. It often starts as Christianity “lite” and continues in that vein all too often.
    It often lacks the prophetic, the power, the miraculous, the potency and role of the Gospels unavoidable offence, that leads to surrender and repentance.

    It doesn’t go DEEP enough relationally. Church must be more than sitting in tidy rows, singing trendy songs, nodding at worthy causes and critiquing the platform experience as if it were therapeutic entertainment! We need a home, a family, and a band of brothers; not an event, with an audience, and our favourite celebrity preachers.

    None of us can thrive without deeply belonging to a small tribe of adventurers who are on a quest to know God deeply, surrender wholeheartedly to the point of personal pain, and who live to selflessly reach a world with a purpose that is beyond themselves!
    Yes, I’m done with attractional, “lights, camera, action”, concert style church – it’s time for a RADICAL REMNANT to Rise up!!
    How about you?

    Traditional church works for me. Perhaps not for some people. Hmmm. Interesting that not everyone works the same. But all people are different.

    I've never been to the "concert-style" church, so I can't say anything about it.

    I do like the part about a church being a home and family. I have been fortunate to have experienced at least a taste of that.

    I don't know, ask him, I just thought it was thought provoking post, specially after starting to read the book @Moriah's Song recommended last night.
