Thinking about it:

We probably all now some people who have gone to church in the past, and, for one reason or another, do not attend anymore and have no plans to do so.

  • What are some of the reasons/excuses they may give for not going to church anymore?
  • What may be some of the ways that churches have deserved the criticism and cynicism?
  • What may be some of the self-centered reasons people come to this view of the church?
  • How can both the real shortcomings of the church and the self-centered heart work together to cause this?

Read: Psalm 133

  • What makes the difference between a “painful/unhealthy” church and a pleasant/life-giving one?

  • Acts 14:21 & 23
