Why does it seem the bigger churches around my area seem weaker in spirit?

Question by SmallChurchWarrior: Why does it seem the bigger churches around my area seem weaker in spirit?
I talk to people from other churches and they seem kinda bland in their belief… they talk against drinking, stealing, drugs, and sex(before you marry)… but they say this with a cigarette in ther hand?!?!
They are teaching against what they are doing! I try not to judge people by what they wear, where they go to church, or what they look like. I just want to know why are they doing it? A preacher that leads a congrigation of 200+ people has a porn addiction, or plays the lottery, or hits his wife. Am I being to judgemental about them?

Dr. George Hendric Houghton, and worshipped in a home at 48 East 29th Street until the church was built and consecrated in 1849.
The church was designed in the early English Neo-Gothic style; the architech has not been identified.[2] The sanctuary is set back from the street behind a garden which creates a facsimile of the English countryside which has long been an oasis for New Yorkers of all faiths who relax in the garden, pray in the chapel or enjoy free weekday concerts in the main church. The complex has grown somewhat haphazardly over the years, and for this it is sometimes called the "Holy Cucumber Vine."[3] The sanctuary had a guildhall, transepts and a tower added to it in 1852, and the lych-gate, designed by Frederick C.

Can you help me with a math problem? How many laps around a building would be a mile?

Question by me: Can you help me with a math problem? How many laps around a building would be a mile?
I live near a big church and I go for walks in the evenings around it.
I walk at a regular pace not too slow and not too fast.

I timed myself and I’m guessing I walk at 2mph.
It takes 22 minutes to walk around the church.

I wanted to know from that information if you can tell me how many laps running, instead of walking, would be 1 mile.
Do you need anymore info?

I appreciate your time.
Thank you.

Best answer:

Answer by Joe D
Each lap is .733 of one mile, so 1.36 laps would be one mile.

Total Church: A Radical Reshaping around Gospel and Community (Re:Lit)

Total Church: A Radical Reshaping around Gospel and Community (Re:Lit)

Two pastors outline and apply a pair of overarching biblical principles that call the current body of Christ to a deep restructuring of its life and mission.

“Church is not a meeting you attend or a place you enter,” write pastors Tim Chester and Steve Timmis. “It’s an identity that is ours in Christ. An identity that shapes the whole of life so that life and mission become ‘total church.'” With that as their premise, they emphasize two overarching principles to govern the practice of church and mission: being gospel-centered and being community-centered. When these principles take precedence, say the authors, the truth of the Word is upheld, the mission of the gospel is carried out, and the priority of relationships is practiced in radical ways. The church becomes not just another commitment to juggle but a 24/7 lifestyle where programs, big events, and teaching from one person take a backseat to sharing lives, reaching out, and learning about God together.

In Total Church, Chester and Timmis first outline the biblical case for making gospel and community central and then apply this dual focus to evangelism, social involvement, church planting, world missions, discipleship, pastoral care, spirituality, theology, apologetics, youth and children’s work. As this insightful book calls the body of Christ to rethink its perspective and practice of church, it charts a middle path between the emerging church movement and conservative evangelicalism that all believers will find helpful.

“Grotte de Han” Andyandkaren’s photos around Han-sur-Lesse, Belgium (brussels to han sur lesse)

Preview of Andyandkaren’s blog at TravelPod. Read the full blog here: www.travelpod.com This blog preview was made by TravelPod using the TripAdvisor™ TripWow slideshow creator. Entry from: Han-sur-Lesse, Belgium Entry Title: “Grotte de Han” Entry: “After our busy day walking and riding in the Ardennes, we had a lie in. We got ourselves to Ciney on the bus and took the train to Jemelle. As we exited the train station eagle eyed Andy spotted that the bus we wanted was just about to leave, so we sprinted and just hopped on as it was ready to depart. It took us straight to the village of Han sur Lesse where the caves of Han were. First a 100 year old train took us up and around the hill where we entered the caves. We then walked back down 2km through the magnificent caves that have been formed over 500000 years as the river Lesse cut its way through the hillside. Halfway through there was a sound and light show in the largest chamber. It was absolutely amazing, the photos dont do it any justice! Later on in the evening after our meal, we noticed a large halo around the moon around 10:30pm. Was it cloud or the hole in the ozone layer? Did anyone else notice it at all? (no wine, beer or spacecakes had been consumed by us that night!)” Read and see more at: www.travelpod.com Photos from this trip: 1. “Belgian train” 2. “Heading into the caves” 3. “Staligmites” 4. “And more!” 5. “,000 years in the making (not Karen!)” 6. “Drapes” 7. “Exiting the caves” 8. “The grass is always

Article Source: http://www.articlesbase.com/ – Gospel Music Around World





Gospel music basically has its origins in the African American slaves who brought their African musical traditions to America and fused these traditions with the old Christian hymns. Several of these techniques, including the blue note and syncopation make gospel music around world distinct from other kinds of music around today. Gospel songs that arose from the African American fusion of Christian hymns and African musical tradition began to achieve more exposure in the 1920s with the emergence of churches known as Sanctified or Holiness churches. Traveling preachers brought these kinds of music along with them wherever they went. Among the most popular was Thomas Dorsey who was most responsible for popularizing gospel music in the 30s.

These days, gospel music around world is still reaching out and the spreading to Christian denominations. The original gospel music developed by African Americans has evolved as they have been spread to other parts of the world.

There are many types of gospel music around world that arose from the original gospel genre. These are urban contemporary gospel, gospel blues, southerner gospel, progressive southern gospel, Christian country music, bluegrass, and Celtic.

Urban Contemporary gospel is the subgenre of gospel music that is most identified with the black heritage of gospel music and is still marketed today as black gospel.  Blues is a form of gospel singing with  a blues influence and a lot of guitar, while southern gospel is characterized by the all male quartet and with songs that talk about the hardships in life and how God helps people overcome these hardships. Progressive Southern gospel music is an offshoot of Southern gospel.

Christian Country music is the subgenre of gospel music that does not have its origins in the African American culture but is a major component of gospel music nonetheless. Christian country music has developed into a more mainstream and contemporary form of musical worship, although it has come under criticism for being too liberal and too main stream and losing the religious messages that gospel music was intended to spread. Bluegrass gospel is county Christian music more prevalent in the mountains of America. Celtic music is the kind of gospel music that thrives in such countries as Ireland. A popular proponent of Celtic gospel music is the Dublin Gospel choir.

Blurring the Lines Between Gospel and Contemporary Music

In most countries, there remains a distinction between church and religious music. With the popularity of Christian contemporary music, more and more artists are dabbling between the two, embracing both religious and secular forms of music. There are some subgenres of gospel music around world, however, that have remained steadfast in the overt quality of their worship in their music, very much unlike contemporary Christian music, which more often than not contained double entendres in its lyrics, which means that the song can be applied to both religious and secular contexts. Southern gospel songs in particular have remained  overt in the Christian messages of its lyrics despite the infusion of bluegrass and jazz influences.
