Communities or Congregations? Part 2 of 2

I long ago came to understand that the narrative passages of scripture are not automatically or necessarily prescriptive for life and behavior today. They need to be understood in their social, historical and linguistic context. First century culture was very different than life in the twenty-first century

In this Place

In this place they call “a church,”
We search for vision, grasping at shadows
Instead finding everyone walking behind masks
Hiding from the transparent intensity of the light
