A Re-birth of the Church? Sunshine
 
I don’t know when I heard this or who told me, but there is an old joke that goes like this:
The disciples were gathered in Galilee on top of a nearby mountain awaiting Jesus. Jesus
showed up and gave them the Great Commission.
 
‘All authority in heaven and on earth has been given to me. Go therefore and make disciples of
all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and
teaching them to obey everything that I have commanded you. And remember, I am with you
always, to the end of the age.’
 
Jesus had no sooner departed when the devil snuck up and said to the disciples, “And
remember to build really big expensive buildings where you can all hang out with each
other.”
 
This is less a joke than a criticism of the way the “church” is defined by many. The church is
a building, right? So, if we want to be the church, we need to have a building where all the
churchy stuff happens. Where we can be disciples of Jesus. But here is the problem, Jesus
did not say to the disciples, stay on this mountain, build a building and wait for folks to drop
in so you can tell them the Good News. No, Jesus said go! What does that look like in 2020?
You might be surprised. Listen to Pastor Jeff talk about it in his message “A Re-birth of the
Church?” on Sunday at 9:30 on the JMPC Facebook Live stream. You can also watch the
service later on Facebook our the JMPC YouTube channel. Join us – virtually!
