Time to grow up
Church is not a place nor a building, but a diverse group of people from a variety of backgrounds, nations, races and ages. Therefore the local church cannot possible be a rigidly structured organization but rather is a living family that constantly experiences changes and with it challenges. Those changes and challenges come through new members, who experience and express freedom and creativity in the belonging Jesus gave his life for. New family members, no matter what will always challenge the status quo. After all they want to learn, want to know, and want to understand all the while the older once, those who are being challenges to be teachers have to learn to be weaned from milk. Challenging indeed and yet since it is Christ who builds his Church, I have great hope for us who like milk all too much.
