As the ideas and planning for Empty Church started coming to form it was evident that we needed a front porch swing. We needed a place to talk, wrestle with issues, and find safety when life starts tagging us with difficulty. There needed to be a place where conversation happens and we learn something new or hear something again, but for the first time. We needed a place that was equally accessible for those that like to talk, but also for those who prefer to listen. But the idea of sitting on a porch swing is, admittedly, an outdated one. Newer homes do not have front porches much less porch swings.
Empty Church is for digital natives that are trying to find out how to live the six days between Sundays when the church building are empty.
