When we view our building as our legacy—as the thing that will last—we tie the church, which Jesus founded and against which the gates of hell will not prevail, to a building, which will crumble and collapse in a matter of time.
Quote from an article I read about church architecture. It’s especially interesting for me as I serve a congregation who has been blessed to have a beautiful church building built in 1890. It has served our people and community well for generations. But I don’t want our future tied to a building. I want our future tied to God’s power in Christ as found in the Gospel.
