We'll see I guess

I hope this does not make my boys too freakish but I want to eliminate the phrase “going to church” from their vocabularies. I would like them (and me) to say we are going to “gather with the church” or we are going to “be with the church”. I want to impress upon them (and me too) that the church is not a place, but a people. That is what Christ promised to build. We are not going to the Lord’s house. The Lord’s houses are meeting in a place where we will respond to Him in a special way. It’s a mouthful and I’m sure it is imprecise at some level…just not as imprecise as the alternative.
