Our primary operating assumptions need to be:
- Church is the people not the building.
- Every part of the church (the people) is essential.
- Every person has gifts.
- In baptism, we are all equal.
- Our expression of church should match our operating assumptions.
My series on engaging everyone in church argues that every single one of us is vital to becoming a church with vitality. Using my notes from a lecture by Sam Portaro at the Episcopal Cathedral of St. Philip in Atlanta, I am going through each age group. In dealing with where each group is, we can imagine where our church could be.
