the church: relationship, philosophy, system, art, business

The church started in the middle east where it was about relationship
The church went to the Greeks where it became a philosophy
The church went to the Romans where it became a system
The church went to Europe where it became and art form
The church went to American where it became a business

I heard that the other night.  Love it.
There are strengths and weaknesses in all of the motifs for church.  It is interesting to see how those strengths and weakness have played out over history.
