What should the church be like?
A members-only club with a stringent application process and effective vetting?
A free theater which lets the public watch our public performances?
A family religion business which makes sure the founder can make a good living?
A lodge where the main reason for membership is that your dad is a lifetime member?
A community which has firm and definite ideas about how things should be, but where anyone can get in on the discussion and where there is always an open chair at the dinner table.
