Maybe we don’t need just one church

In a recent interview, Julia Lawrence expressed some of her own viewpoints on being a Christian and what it means to go to church

Having been raised in church, Lawrence said she noticed a pattern with churches and telling the same stories every year. She concluded that going to one church all year long, and never changing, prevents a person from having multiple perspectives on being a Christian.

To Lawrence, who currently attends five churches, being a Christian is about researching, questioning and exploring different interpretations of the Bible. She said different people have different beliefs, and that’s okay.

This contradicts the basic idea of being a part of one church family. What practice is better? How else could be become well-rounded Christians?
