If you could start a church, what would it be like?

One thing i would have is that church did not start until 5:00 pm! Who made this rule about getting up early on Sunday, fighting with your family to get ready and out the door to be to church by 9/10 am.

  • It would be around 11am, one day a week(maybe Wednesdays).
    Casual dress. Brunch afterwards(donations would be good to keep these going).
    Lots of cool music, very little speaking LOL, time set aside for meditation/deep thought.

  • It would be open to the elements and the sky and would be well landscaped. It would meet several times throughout the week and mostly be a place for meditation and contemplation. Sermons would be guided meditation practices and we would have guest speakers once a week tell us about their path. It would be more of a temple than a church.

    Ah, I'm wistful just thinking about it :)

  • My assembly doesn't start till 1:30 pm and it is perfect the way it is.We dress modestly, and in our respectful clothing. We sing,we listen to the message, and then we sing some more. After that we eat a meal, and have an open discussion about our favorite subjects: Yahweh and Yahshua, and the bible.Blessings..

  • I would never have one. After all, churches tend to corrupt even their creators and charter members.
