<DIV>I found this in my notes:</DIV>
<DIV>EKKLHSIA assembly duly summoned (usually by one of authority hO ECWN KUROS;
Belonging&nbsp; to the Lord, KUPIAKOS); in the Lxx it is "the Jewish
congregation". Lord can be secular. Meetings of early Christians took place in a
home or sometimes in a room of a house specifically set up for the use of these
assemblies or "ekklesia" and that place of meeting was at a place of one with
authority or affluence in the congregation. It can be used as meaning the
assembly of people with common interests, or ethnos, called by a leader.</DIV>
<DIV>I would appreciate any corrections to my understanding of the term. I'm not
sure of my source or sources. If need be&nbsp;I could check further.</DIV>
