In February, our Sunday evening gathering (the Hub) is going to start a series about "STRANGE CHURCHY THINGS". The idea is that we forget sometimes how foreign or weird our church stuff can seem to most other people. Things like baptism and communion can be too familiar for us… and so bizarre to others. Things like the idea of the Trinity and words like "sanctification" or "fellowship" or "frankensence". What we call "worship" can seem like a weird sing-a-long time to many not used to the way we "do" church. In focusing on this, we hope to recapture some of the powerful meaning behind these things… or else change the way we do things if they are not vital and if they put up too many roadblocks for others.
So I’m curious, as we prep for this series, what do you think are some of the "strange" things we do and think that those outside the church would think are strange?
