Not clubbable…

We had a lovely evening tonight with friends, discussing life, childhood, faith and children.

Drinking wine and listening to good music.

One of our friends described her son as ‘not clubbable’- meaning that he was not comfortable joining in-groups. Such groups are scary, exclusive, and make too many demands that he does not necessarily want to be committed to on a week by week basis.

Does this remind you of anything?

The decline in membership of unions, bowling clubs, debating societies, womens institutes, working men’s clubs etc etc.

And churches.

Perhaps we are increasingly not churchable.

Or perhaps churches can no longer behave like clubs…
