How big is your church? Like how many people attend? And what percent do you think are involved in all those things? We go to a maybe 400+ Sunday attending church, but it doesn't seem like many people do a ton outside of Sunday service. I'm still learning about all that's going on though and I'm working toward advocating for change (the kind of stuff that's happening at your church it seems like).
The thing is, no matter how hard I push this, on the blog or in the church, I highly highly doubt the sermon is going away anytime soon.
I agree with you a little on the idea of the elders, but don't we have that in Elder boards and don't they seem to do anything but shift churches to put more attention and focus on justice issues?
Hope that helps.

For example, when we lived in Nashville, I'd just skip church sometimes and go with a bunch of anarchist to make and eat lunch with a bunch of homeless downtown. It was wonderful and great, but it was just me, never anyone else from the church I attended.
If I was planning on just ditching the whole church thing (and believe me, I've considered it), then that might make sense, but for now, I'll spend some time trying to pull others along with me
But, I'm thinking your saying just purposefully create small 'house church' size groups to meet and bond?
