Last week an acquaintance from Switzerland e-mailed me some thoughts on church:

– church is a verb although we have mostly reduced it to a noun
– This Verb can happen in many forms, and we should judge the Noun (the form) by how much and how purely it allows the Verb to happen
– If the noun prohibits the verb to work then you have a problem
– Church is not a structure / an institution but something that happens

What are your thoughts on this?
