Church as Home, Church as Family

Isn’t church supposed to be like a home and our fellow church-goers a family?  In a May 4th post on his blog, “The Accidental Missionary,” Scott Dannemiller argues against that notion, and he makes some interesting points along the way about why mainline churches are losing congregants.  Here’s a couple of excerpts:
