Halverson on the Church

I found this quote in the book The Divine Commodity: Discovering a Faith Beyond Consumer Christianity by Skye Jethani, which I wholly recommend and will be soon publishing a review of here. This is from former U.S. Senate chaplain Richard Halverson:
“In the beginning the church was a fellowship of men and women centered on the living Christ. Then the church moved to Greece, where it became a philosophy. Then it moved to Rome, where it became an institution. Next, it moved to Europe, where it became a culture. And, finally, it moved to America, where it became an enterprise.”
