I once had an idea for a cartoon. I pictured an angry, offended chicken confronting a startled cat. "No, this is not a chicken 'coop,"' the blustery hen is saying, "it's a chicken 'co-op."'
I think of that old hen whenever I hear people make unfair demands of their church leaders, or the church itself. And I've wondered if such folks feel "cooped up" in church because they've never caught the "co-op" spirit.
