Teaching or Training?

My brother said something to me during our last visit to Grandma's house that stuck with me.

"Is your church teaching believers or training them?"

Are we just doing classroom work, or do we have "labs" too? We need a lot more apprentices and journeymen (and women) in the church. Instead we have a lot of people "stuck in the warehouse."

The warehouse idea comes from a great read from Ed Stetzer called Simply Missional. This is not a short blog post, but it expresses so well how the church should be in the world. I would encourage anyone who is interested in being the church instead of going to church to check it out.
