The sTArFish Files?
Starfsh line the shores o the world’s beaches. Chop o an arm, and a new one grows to take its place. Tear a starfsh in hal, and you’ll soonhave two starfsh on your hands. A torn-o limb can even becomea brand new starfsh. And what’s more, they populate by releasing hundreds o thousands, and sometimes millions, o eggs in just a ew hours. Just like the house church movement through the ages. An estimated 300,000 new house churches have started between1998 and 2006. And this doesn’t include what’s happening in China, which has about 80 to 100 million believers involved, or Latim America, which had about 1 million Basic Christian Communities in2007. It’s also taking root in Canada. Enter The Starfsh Files. Themagazine’s goal is to inspire, inorm, and interconnect the housechurch networks across Canada and beyond.
