Over the last nearly 2,000 years, there have been about 4,000 ideas on what "church" should look like. Big, small, formal, laid back, old music, new music, wine, grape juice ... I think that it was Jocko 42:11 that said "wherever two or more are gathered, three or more opinions are present."
Despite all of that, often what we focus on as necessities for the church are merely opinions and options. Pianos, pulpits, robes, hymns, choruses and so on are all acceptable options but not required. Does that mean that anything can go? Not at all - and that's what we'll look at this Sunday as we continue to look at how the early church dealt with the gospel.
This week, we'll explore "Gospel Life in the Church" as we wrap up the second chapter of Acts.
