Week 1 – Wednesday (or Thursday am, doh!)

Great conversation yesterday in class; the [institutional] church is similar here in the states as the mission station context in other countries was as MacGavern experienced it.  The church is it’s own culture, a group unto itself, a club, a ghetto, etc.  The institutional church has it’s own language, customs, etc, that others have to assimilate into in order to “be of the faith”.
