Cheers Without the Beers

That's kind of a short description what I think church should be more like.

Oh, it's not original with me; lots of folks have said so.

But church really should be the kind of place that unanimously, joyfully greets: "Norm!"

Except with one major difference.

Not the beers.

The greeting.

Church should also be the kind of place that unanimously, joyfully greets: "Cliffy!"

"Lilith!"

"What's shakin', Frasier?" "My faith in humanity." "Bet we got something for that behind the bar. What'll you have?" "I'm in a poetic mood tonight. How about a KJV, straight up?"

Then it would really be church.

I so agree with you--so why doesn't it happen like this??

"Where Everybody Knows Your NAAAAME"

"Sometimes you wanna go
Where everybody knows your name
And they're always glad you came.
You wanna be where you can see
The troubles are all the same.
You wanna go where everybody knows your name."

Great post Keith!

"Norm!" The bar room scenes are timeless.

My church is beers without the cheers. Why can't we have both?

But... I like beer! Can't I have the beer too? (occasionally)

Okay, but don't expect me to drink the stinky stuff.
