Difference between Cultivating Community and Building a Church by Kathy Escobar

I originally wrote this post in 2010, and it’s part of down we go. but in the past couple of weeks I’ve had some interesting conversations that reminded me of it and i thought i’d pare it down and re-post it. it’s funny, still, after these years, my thought is pretty much the same except for adding one more point at the end. There’s a huge difference between cultivating community and building a church....
