Go to Church to Be the Church
Much has been written on this topic, and I actually haven't encountered anyone lately who has used the 'be the church/don't go to church' phrase, but I think the things contained in this succinct article are so valuable. If the statistic it mentions--60% of self-identified Christians don't attend worship--is correct, this is needed teaching and encouragement.
"Church membership is a gift and a duty. It’s sort of like making your children eat their dessert."
