Though the way this comc strip is phrased, I think it’s intended to be a bit of a jab at religion on the whole, it’s a great window into the relative absurdity of our perspective on “membership” in today’s world.
Do we even need membership anymore? Does it mean anything? Amy and I grew a church for eight years without membership. Does it make some more invested? Does it turn others away? Does it really speak to the radical openness that we’re supposed to be offering the world as followers of the Way of Jesus?
