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.
Church should also be the kind of place that unanimously, joyfully greets: “Cliffy!”
“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)>>(grin)
Okay, but don’t expect me to drink the stinky stuff.
