Church as a Hospital

I was talking with one of my friends last night and she said something profound. It wasn't the first time I've heard this, but it struck a new cord:

What if we looked at the church more as a hospital for sinners in need of healing and redemption...

Would this change how we deal with:

sexual sins
family problems

the list could go on and on...

but, seriously, when we are asking ourselves and others to change ingrained patterns in our lives, messy stuff comes out. As a community with the love of the Christ and power of the Holy Sprit, change can and will happen, but it won't be easy and it will take work
