House churches on the grow...is this good?

I was raised in a house church.

Worked for me!

But is this a good trend? Barna:
The new study, based on interviews with more than five thousand randomly selected adults from across the nation, found that 9% of adults attend a house church during a typical week. That is remarkable growth in the past decade, shooting up from just 1% to near double-digit involvement. In total, one out of five adults attends a house church at least once a month.

I'm sure you've read "Revolutions"... I'm not sure whether the "house church" statistics reflect a growing trend that will latter eclipse into a dying fad or if it really is a "revolution" in the church.

Personally, I think the church could use a small revolution that would propel church members out of their 2nd or 3rd worship service/bible study of the week and into each other homes. Maybe after that "revolution" occurs there can be a 2nd one that propels them out into the world to engage it with love and truth.
