What Do You See When You See “Church”?

What Do You See When You See “Church”?

Sometimes when people see the church, all they can see is the weeds. But sometimes, they look at us, and they can see wheat. Maybe we just need to help them see it…

The life-giving love of Jesus, growing inside us. The love that connects us to each other, the love we’ve received, and given. The love that grows out to the world… A field of love, growing right here. Because maybe that’s what they’re hungry for, too. Maybe they just want to be fed.

What If It’s Not About Us?

What If It’s Not About Us?

"The Spirit is essential for us to be the Church... But here’s the thing: in the deepest of paradoxes, in order to be the Church, we also need to understand that the Spirit is not all about us!

If we are going to be followers of Jesus, we need to trust that the Spirit is with us. And then we need to follow Jesus out into the world, where his mission and ministry take place. "
