There is nothing quite like the church. It is a unique institution with all of its quirky grace and troublesome love mixed with beautiful ashes and horrible freedom. Imagining what it would be like if the church were just another business or organization helps us process some of the greatness of the Body of Christ.
Because if it were a business, this might be something you’d see:
