What’s the purpose of a hospital?

Here’s the dictionary definition:

A hospital is a health care institution providing patient treatment with specialized medical and nursing staff and medical equipment.

What’s the purpose of a church?

Here’s Nicky Gumbel’s definition:

Churches are not museums that display perfect people. They are hospitals where the wounded, hurt, injured and broken find healing.

Does your church feel more like a museum than a hospital for the hurt and broken? If it does, is it really the church you want to be part of?
