Good Question. What's Your Answer?

From Michael Horton's The Gospel-Driven Life: Being Good News People In A Bad News World :

What is your church like? More importantly, what came into your mind first when you read that question? Here is one possible answer: We have great music, programs for every age group and interest, lots of ministry opportunities, clean nurseries, and an awesome youth group. I feel at home there: it's a great place to make friends and establish community (i.e., there are a lot of people there like me). Here is another possible answer, though probably less popular: The Word is faithfully preached, the sacraments are faithfully administered according to Christ's institution, and the elders and deacons look after the spiritual and temporal welfare of the people.
