A Radically Ancient Way to Plant Churches

I've begun my dissertation research on new Seattle churches, and was delighted to discover this uniquely simple, beautiful, and compelling approach by the Christ-followers behind www.communitydinners.com.  This Pentecostal church asked themselves "what would Jesus be doing in our neighborhood" and has begun taking steps toward offering free community meals in all of the 27 walking villages of Seattle (they're currently at 5 or 6). They're also working to provide housing, training, and employment. 
But this isn't just another church providing a social service.  Each meal is followed by "time to encourage the soul by retelling a short story about Christ and offering a prayer for those who want to stay."  This is church, and they know it.  In their own words, "Community Dinners in Seattle are not a feeding program or an outreach; they are Dinner Churches modeled after the Agape’ Feasts of the first century."  I can't wait to see these communities in action!  Check out the video.

  2. Cool video :) Amazingly the pathway to church planting hasn't changed much since the first church was ever started. Check out Dag Heward-Mills' "Church Planting" for pragmatic steps to planting churches. Littered with real life examples and counsel from years of experience and the Word of God, this book is a must read for any serious Christian. Be blessed! :)

  7. It should come as no surprise to fans who saw rolex datejust replica the first movie that a follow-up could involve replica rolex Hulk's comic book nemesis replica handbags The Leader. The character was ably set up by actor Tim Blake Nelson, who played a quirky scientist who becomes exposed to Banner's freak DNA and starts to mutate in one scene of the movie.
