A 2007 blog post from Bill Kinnon impacts one homeschooling mother who brings it back to life for the St Louis Post-Dispatch in a post entitled Giving Thanks for the Emerging Church. This quote from Bill's post, called The People Formerly Known as The Congregation, struck me as being powerful.
"We grew weary from your Edifice Complex pathologies – building projects more important than the people in your neighbourhood…or in your pews. It wasn’t God telling you to “enlarge the place of your tent” – it was your ego. And, by the way, a multi-million dollar, state of the art building is hardly a tent."
