Early Church Studies Quote of the Week – On Fellowship

This week’s quote comes from an old friend that has been a “virtual mentor” to me over the years – Wayne Jacobsen:

Anyone who talks about fellowship as an obligation, doesn’t really understand what fellowship is all about.

You can read more of his commentary on this over on the Lifestream blog.

Is church supposed to be a “service” that one attends, maybe even dreads?

It goes something like this,

“I have to go to church Sunday morning, then we can make plans to get together…”


“I have to be the Greeter today, so…”

Fellowship is not designed to be an obligation, but in many ways it has become one.
