The critical exploration of Church building as sacred place
Using the same term both for the community of people that follow Christ and for the building in which the believers meet with God, all Christian people acknowledged the inseparable link (i.e. Christ) between the Church as community and the church building. If in the former He is present in a spiritual way, in the latter, Christ is present in a more visible way. Thus, the community cannot be dissociated from the church building and vice versa. The church building is sacred not for the inert stone from which is built but for the sacred place that is constituted between its stones through the actions and events that take place inside of it.
