Leaving More Than a Building

Relevant Magazine recently posted a great article from Micah Smith. In it she talks about the downside of when a person decides to bail on a particular church community. Sadly, we see this often today and this is a great perspective to consider. Here is one of my favorite quotes from it:
“The problem comes when walking away from the Sunday morning service means walking away from people. From God’s people. From the endless beauty of a common knowledge of a greater good. From people who will serve with you, pray with you, believe in you and fight for you. At the end of the day, the mystery of the Church isn’t a worship song or a sermon. If it is, then sure, walk out of the building, load up your iPod with church podcasts and worship bands, and never look back. But the reality is that sermons and songs aren’t all that you give up when you walk away. You also sacrifice a community of believers.”
