House church

There is a nice post at House Church Chronicles about how to prepare for a house church meeting.

"Years of sitting in traditional church has not prepared us to do church in the manner described in the New Testament. We have been taught to come. To sit. To watch and listen to what others have prepared. (Someone described it as "sit, soak and sour".) This is Spectator Church. And it is no way to train believers to be priests!

"By contrast, the churches described in the Bible engaged in Participatory Church. This kind of church requires preparation on the part of all of it's members. This is new. We haven't been taught how to do this..."

He then goes on to do an exposition on Hebrews 10.

His post had disappeared for a couple of days, I'm glad got it restored, well worth reading.
