Meeting together

I don't really know what else to call it. We met in our home last night with fellow Christians to talk about life, what God's put on our hearts, to pray and play Sequence. None of it was planned except the invitation we put out to anyone interested in joining us. A couple brothers came and the evening progressed in a very natural way, hanging out and getting to know each other. And in that process we talked a lot about what God has laid on each of our hearts, some of our struggles and what exactly to call it when we come together - church?? Not quite, as the church IS the body of Christ.

Although I have no idea what to call it I do know there was teaching (from the Word and our own experiences), a coming together in the Spirit, prayer, honesty & lots of laughter. We didn't break bread but we did feed the kids rice cakes - does that count?

    If you're counting having fellowship, breaking the Living Bread, and sharing what's in your hearts in sincerity and honesty, I think this sounds like a 'church' meeting. Terminology for its own sake can be confusing and confining - what I personally want to know is what does God think about it in relation to me, whatever 'it' is.

    I've been walking around this cabin in NH thinking about the imagery Jesus used to describe this thing. So far I have; Vine and Branches, Shepherd and Sheep, Friends, Mother, Brothers and Sisters. Peace, Bob
