1. Christ is the Body and He is Love and both can only exist in community
2. God’s people are given the ministry of reconciliation (2 Cor. 5) and reconciliation begins first in our homes, down the street, in this pew, around the corner, in community — or we are ministers of misrepresentation.
12. The Christian life is the compassionate, crucified, cruciformed life. Not the comfortable life. Community is how God shapes His children into the image of Christ.
15. Every chance I have to love imperfect people is another chance to perfect His love in me. . This is a way to soar.
