Christchurch earthquake (continued)

In my last entry, I commented on the number of churches that were destroyed in last Tuesday’s earthquake. Of course, I was talking about buildings. But the buildings are not the churches. The buildings are the physical sites where communities of God’s people – the churches – meet. After the September 22nd 2010 earthquake, Oxford Terrace Baptist Church erected a sign pointing to this fact. With an unusable building because of serious cracks (particularly in the neo-classical facade), yet they noted that ‘the church’ was fine. Now their worship space is a pile of rubble. The church, though, while shaken and saddened by recent events, is still there. Let’s pray for all these communities of God’s people who, having lost their buildings, remain communities of God’s people seeking to realize God’s kingdom in that unstable place.
