- The Gathering
Today’s churches and church-planting movements are at risk of failing due to a lack of understanding the heart of Jesus’ intention for life within the church. With a focus on 1 Corinthians 11:17-14:40, this encyclical explores the centrality of “the gathering” and “the meal” as the heart of the church meeting in the early first century churches. By highlighting the misunderstanding today’s churches have in the way they meet, this encyclical lays out the importance of mastering “the gathering” to build strong, lasting churches.
