Experience Church, Stripped Down

From Church Marketing Sucks:
If the electricity went out, and your walls fell down, and your biggest givers died, what would you have left? Would you have a community of people still seeking after the heart of God? Would you still worship even without a band? Would you still be able to learn about God even though you can't show a video or a PowerPoint slide? In other words, what you have when everything else goes away is what your church is really all about.

http://walkingchurch.blogspot.com/ is an example of Christian Community without the trappings.

Christ's church is designed to survive...not decline or emmerge. As God states: 'I am'. So too, the church states: 'I am who I am in Him' (found to be complete in Him).

Do we really exist to 'do' or just 'be'? I believe the latter. I am simply happy to state: 'I am who I am in Him' the RoG

most churches & christians, sadly, are better at "doing" than "being"
