In this age of rising real estate costs and aging church facilities, questions about and concern for buildings often gets in the way of ministry.  I am not an anti-building person - I just know that too often these days, the building becomes the tail that wags the dog.  Add in the likelihood that the average American adult Christian these days  will have lower income and higher debt load than their parents.  It all means that churches must do a serious rethink about our relationship to physical facilities.
