Over the weekend I read the first two chapters of Pete Ward's book 'Liquid Church' and I really love it. Ward states that the Church must be like water - flexible, fluid and changeable, so it can embrace the liquid nature of culture.
He urges us to move away from the traditional notion of church as a gathering of people meeting in one place at one time to the dynamic notion of church as a series of relationships and communications. In the Liquid Church, membership is determined by participation and involvement. Liquid Church is continually on the move, flowing in response to the Spirit and the gospel of Jesus, the imagination and creativity of its leaders, and the choices and experiences of its worshippers.
