I don't want to hijack the coffee thread, but when I was a kid it was stressed to us Baptists had auditoriums, not sanctuaries, and they were for the purpose of preaching, not worshipping. The people were the church, our heart was the altar, and we worshipped Him hopefully in Spirit and in truth. I find it confusing to say the least when Baptists call the hall the sanctuary, to worship in, and call the invitation an altar call. My thoughts tend to go where they should not--seeing modern Baptists as a weird cross between Pentecostals and Catholics adoring the leftovers from the last communion elements in the previous Mass. Bad me, I know. Your thoughts?
