(apologies for the popping on the recording) For some this may be a little counter-intuitive. I believe that the issue of ecclesiology (theology of the church) is one of the most misunderstood areas in the western church, and it leads to ineffective, unfruitful lives if we miss it. May God bless you with a real church family!
