What things might be considered expendable in a church assembly? A large number, really. Let me start a list:
- pews or chairs
- microphones, amplifiers, and speakers
- different leaders to perform the various functions
- any official leaders at all (I see leadership as not-so-expendable, but in the ideal world, even it is not as crucial as today’s business world tends to make us think it is)
- a talk or a reading before communion
- scripture readings
Please add to the list! C’mon. This’ll be fun….
