We live in divided times. But Jesus calls his followers to find their belonging in community. Following an Anabaptist model of theology, we look at what it looks like to live in a community of faith. Jesus-followers need to give their unique contributions to the church. They also need to receive from their church. That combination of giving and receiving is crucial to finding belonging in community.
Questions for Reflection
- What is the hardest part about giving ourselves to the church?
- Can you think of times or places where others in the church encouraged you or challenged you? How did that make you feel?
- What can we do to support the work of the church in our community?
