Church: Concert or Dinner Party

flyinginbluesky

I thought this was a good post, questions I've asked plenty of times before, but its always nice to hear somebody else saying it. (I actually think a lot of the stuff I link to is often just saying what I think, but said better. I need to link to, and read more, stuff I disagree with-its no good never being challenged and what not)

If Solace is like a concert then it (whatever Solace activity we might be thinking of) is an event that we can go to if we wish. Our attendance or non-attendance at the event doesn’t alter the event. We see ourselves as observers and not central to the concert and it won’t be diminished or cancelled if we don’t go. Also, it isn’t affected by whether we choose to talk to anyone while we’re there. And over time, as our tastes change we can stop attending one band’s concerts and move on to another band without causing any pain.

But read the rest of it to put these two little paragraphs in context.
