Community: Church or Gangs?

via the Catalyst Blog.

"Francis Chan tells the story of one attender who came to Cornerstone Church, was baptized, but several months later stopped attending. When asked why, the ex-gang member confessed that he must have had the wrong impression of what church was going to be like. He said, "I thought it was going to be like joining a gang. In the gangs we weren't just nice to each other once a week - we were family."

Do gangs paint a better picture of community than your church does?"

I could add fraternities, sports teams, and other clubs to the list....
