Space. Although I would not like to encourage spending huge amounts of money on a new church architecture, the space in many churches is very poorly designed for the Eucharistic performance of freedom. One of the main problems is the presence of church pews, which I have long regarded as an invention of the Devil to keep the people of God apart. It is exceedingly difficult to envision, let alone perform, the freedom of the gospel while confined to pews. In such a fix, the most one can do is to hear about freedom, not touch it or feel it.
