So what about pews?

Dan Kimball, church leader of Vintage Faith Church in Santa Cruz, California, and author of The Emerging Church, has posted an article in which he questions the theology behind having pews (yes, pews...) in our churches. He traces the history of pews in our churches and asks what they communicate about what we believe is important in church--suggesting that pews place primacy on the preacher and sermon, rather than on mutual fellowship with one another.

How important is our seating in church? Theologically-speaking, what's the best kind of seating? Is it time for us to move to a new kind of seating arrangement in our churches? Should we even care about seating?


I know.... I suck....

I bet no one is even gonna read this. Why? Because there's been nothing new to read for over a month now. I guess I lost my initial "blogger" high. Anyway, I just want everyone to know that I'm gonna try really hard to keep posting!

On another subject, we just bought a new house and we've been moving our stuff in all week. I'm so excited and (while I don't like to overspiritualize things) I feel so blessed that God had made this possible for us. Now all we need is a renter for the house we're moving out of. I'd love it if you could keep that in your prayers.

More posts coming soon...
