A Message from Bruce Joffe


You cant box God up in religion. You cant box Jesus up in Christianity. You cant box church up in a building. You cant box faith up in a set of beliefs. You cant box grace up in conditions. Imagine church without pulpits or pews, creeds or confessionalsno membership, plate-passing, pledges, vestments, heavenly choirs, or altar calls. Without buildings to maintain or staff to sustain, the church no longer is seen as a private club or part of our worldly empires ... but their antithesis.

Description: You can't box God up in religion. You can't box Jesus up in Christianity. You can't box church up in a building. You can't box faith up in a set of beliefs. You can't box grace up in conditions. The Kingdom of God isn't boxed up in our churches. Imagine church without pulpits or pews, creeds or confessionals-no membership, plate-passing, pledges, vestments, heavenly choirs, or altar calls. Without buildings to maintain or staff to sustain, the church no longer is seen as a private club or guilt-trip haven to heaven. Instead, its focus is on caring and sharing, living here-and-now, not in the hereafter. Rather than part of our worldly empires, the church has become their antithesis. From guts to glory, the church begets reform.
