I am a Christ follower who is convinced that what we call the church – the institution – is wrong. When I think back to the first century, I wonder how many of themselves considered themselves part of an institution. I suspect they were people who were serious about their faith who gathered together regularly to live life together, to encourage each other, to worship. Church was wherever believers gathered. Church was wherever two or more were gathered in the name of Jesus.
While I will challenge some of what we do. I’m more interested in examining the possibilities of the Church and what it could be through the leading of the Word of God and the Holy Spirit. I don’t want to spend too much time on efforts at deconstructing the church as it is… I really don’t need to – it seems to be deconstructing itself without my help.
The purpose of reboot is to clear the boards as much as possible of what we “thought” it should be and relook at the original programming. Let’s reboot so we can go back to the original programming without the garbage the system has collected and is messing up the system.
