Church as restaurant

Here's a comment I came across while reading some threads at
To use a metaphor, if church is like a resturant, then what we are giving people now is pre-cooked, pre-digested food rather than giving people quality ingredients and asking them to take the ingredients home, invite their neighbors over, cook the food and share a meal.

Interesting thought. I certainly agree that more folks should engage in the process, and see the importance of responding to the Word of God, perhaps by cooking the food and sharing a meal.
