the church

Things have been a little quiet around the blog for the last couple of weeks. i’ve spent the last week with church people at conferences… Tom Bandy and Brian McLaren… and living with an abscess on my tooth (which is a hell for which there are no words!). It’s been a surreal world.
I’ve come away from this last two weeks with two questions – and they are honest questions, there’s no hidden agenda behind them, and i don’t know what the answers are… it’s time to stop lurking and tell me what you think!

why do people keep going to church? (or more to the point, if this applies: why do you keep going to church?)
why do we think it would be good for other people to come to church?
