Brand new listener, long time fan. Christian asked about the when and why of church gatherings changing; I recommend a book by Frank Viola called “Pagan Christianity”. It’s not what you might expect – ” hey, Christians shouldn’t celebrate all these holidays because they’re pagan” – it’s a historical account of how certain practices came into the church. Pews, funny hats, etc. Hope you check it out! As an aside, Frank was writing about “organic church” before it was cool. :-]
