There are a lot of fancy church buildings these days, but there also seems to be a movement to simplify churches. I've been reading more and more from church leaders reminding us a church is its people, not its building. Churches can be big beautiful, old buildings or modern, high-tech buildings, log cabins, living rooms, gymnasiums, under bridges, on piers, in igloos, atop tree houses... wherever! While it is important of course, to maintain buildings, I think people are on to something when they realize the real investment, the real maintenance should be on the people making up the church. Likewise, while God cared deeply about his tabernacle and ark, he cared more about his people.
