Read this quote from Brian McLaren today and thought it was interesting:

… too often our churches have become human warehouses, where people are gathered and stored so that they can be delivered after death to heaven with minimum loss, spoilage, rust, rot or breakage. These air-conditioned warehouses are equipped with every comfort – from padded seats to a kind of religious muzak – so that those who enter will be happy and never want to leave until they are shipped to their final destination.
