Church Membership

The recent issue of Christianity Today has an excellent article on church membership. In today's less-than-enthusiastic approach to joining, this article stresses the importance of the right metaphors (biblical that stress organic family life vs country club membership) and accountability (articulating disciplinary actions and agreeing to them). What intrigued me was the expansion of membership classes from a two Sunday afternoon session to a 12 week course. Maybe it's time to re-examine how we teach membership.
