Anybody missing a soapbox?

'Cause Mrs. A found it today. (Yeah, as a matter of fact, I DO plan on linking to her a lot. Go figure.)

The only thing I would add is that I think the same compartmentalization of the church that separates families in worship also limits the overall idea of 'corporate' worship as it isolates people into their little groups and doesn't allow for a lot of interaction. I mean, really, do 40 year-olds need to be kept separate from the 30, 50 and 60 year-olds? It's hard to build churchwide unity when the strongest bonds are to the sub-group.

In the past couple of churches we've attended, the most difficult group of people to deal with were the senior adults, most of whom only interacted with other seniors and viewed the rest of us as "outsiders."

Anyway, it's something to think about.
