Maybe Church buildings CAN be good

Lots of postmodern Christians have been very critical of the traditional practice of building church buildings and then expecting the people to show up for worship. Church buildings most certainly do bring some potential problems: the drain on resources and time for upkeep, the potential of developing an "attraction" attitude about the faith (so that the church operates like an entertainment venue) and so on. "Why not just operate as house churches (like the Apostolic Church mostly did) and be done with it?" they ask.

But some Post-modern church leaders are also discovering that having a building also brings great potential for creative ministry if we make good use of it.
