Remove the Pews | Spiritual Possibilities for Sacred Spaces (Schaper)
Practical and Provocative
The pews are only the beginning! Our connection to our sacred spaces is in need of reorientation, as is our connection to the communities surrounding our church buildings.
Pastor and author Donna Schaper takes the long view of the Christian Church in an age of rapid change. The question of who the Church is today -- and how it uses its buildings -- is connected to the Church's past identities and its future hopes.
Schaper is both concrete and provocative in her examination of how the Church might be renewed for the modern age.
