Do you ever play with church names in your mind? There are so many out there. I like the ones that start with “Church of…” They make my imagination run wild.
Church of the Cross
Church of the Nativity
Church of the Covenant
Church of the Open Door
Church of the Living Hope
Church of the Warm Heart
What if we named our churches by our flaws and foibles instead of by our faith and virtue? Wouldn’t it be hysterical?
Church of the Last Minute
Church of the Stiff and Silent
Church of the Harried Mothers
Church of the Cold Shoulder
Church of the Disillusioned with Fellowship Meals
(With much love to my own congregation, who do not represent these titles in any way… 🙂 )
The truth is, I can laugh at us because I believe in us. Any congregation of Jesus is, in fact,
Church of the Precious
Church of the Blood-Bought
Church of Those who will Reign with Him
Church of the Purposes of Jesus
Church of Messed-Up People Being Transformed into Radiant Illustrations of God’s Goodness
