This week at church we are going to do something different. Different but deep.
Over the past few weeks we’ve talked about how the church is to make disciples. That we make disciples through blessing, which literally means to give life to someone. And we also learned that we are sent to those in our Jerusalem’s, Judea’s, and Samaria’s. This is all true. The church is to make disciples, is to bless, and is sent.
This Sunday though we want to focus in on one last aspect of “being the church”. That’s being a body that loves one another.
Each week we gather to be re-sent out into our next week. But we also gather to care for one another. And this week we are going to do that in a practical and meaningful way. We are going to gather around communion tables, share blessing, share life, and pray with one another. We are going to support one another, because this journey of faith is not meant to be lived alone. Life is better together. And the church is at its best when it is active, moving, making disciples, and blessing people together. So this week the focus is on being together, healing one another, supporting one another, and loving one another.
A church that doesn’t reach out, isn’t a church. Yet it is equally true that a church that doesn’t love one another, also isn’t a church.
We are called to gather and to go. So on this Sunday we are going to gather to care.
The question is what do you need, care and support in? How can we help you? What can we do to love and care for one another?
Important questions…so let us know…because we are all in this together…
