ticket buyers

pernell has a great metaphor for a lot of what's happening in the church:

THE COLLOQUY: The Waiting Room: "I have used the anaolgy before likening much of evangelical Christianity to that of a bunch of people in an airport waiting room. They've purchased their ticket, and now they just sit there (in a somewhat stale and sanitized and surreal environment) and wait for the flight home... only seldomly sending out a specially trained salesman to recruit other ticket-buyers to join them. Sadly they often recruit from other airports, rather than venturing into the city... well, I mean their airport is the nicest... plus it's bigger and fancier."
