Is multi-site biblical?

February 21, 2007

There is an interesting discussion on the ecclesiology of multi-site churches going on Touchstone Magazine’s blog, Mere Comments. James M. Kushiner says this…

According to my understanding of the Divine Liturgy, on Sundays we gather not simply in place, but most truly at the one heavenly altar, where one church, spread throughout the world, partakes of the one Cup and the one Bread, thus the same service, the very same Thanksgiving, the Eucharist, is offered by the one people of God throughout the world (and through all time for that matter), all attended by the heavenly hosts. (Hebrews 12:22-24) All of our services, indeed, come from “a central location”! Even if you don’t hold a high sacramental view, you have to admit the idea of a “multisite” single church is not really new!
