The Scattered ChurchAudio / Produced by The High Calling
Your church is in the hearts of the people who gather to worship there and then are scattered to live their lives. So your church is in your homes. Your church is in your shops and businesses and schools and in your doctors' offices and in your hospitals. On your football fields. That's where your church is.
Your church is in the lives of its ordinary membership, and what goes on in the buildings is nothing more than the training and equipping and inspiring of the church to be what it is out in the secular world every day.
This classic audio recording of Howard Butt, Jr., is from his talk called "Jesus the Enabler" delivered in 1989 at Laity Lodge in Leakey, Texas
Don't you know that you yourselves are God's temple and that God's Spirit lives in you? If anyone destroys God's temple, God will destroy him; for God's temple is sacred, and you are that temple.
