My wonderful sister-in-law and I had a little mom date today. We took our four kids (total) downtown for a stroll and to the park. Coming from different places, we met at the local Catholic Church, a natural meeting place–close, easy to find, lots of parking, understanding of slow moms with babies.
There was a day when churches were town centers precisely for these reasons (maybe minus the parking).
The Church should the unifying center of life for believing Christians.
Let’s make it that again!
