Church in Mission (Friday) – Day 5

In Friday’s class, the most interesting part was discussing with our group the different traditions we all come from. In our group, there is one Baptist, one Korean Reformed, and one Taiwanese Presbyterian. I just found it so intriguing to get real life stories. It’s one thing to read about differences in a book; it’s another to actually see and hear from them. The other interesting thing was how institutionalized and structured (eh, legalistic?) the Church became throughout the first 300 years. What started as a wild, revolutionary community of followers became a structured, tamed group. However, it needs to be mentioned that Christian followers went from 10,000 in 100 A.D., to 6,000,000 in 300 A.D.
