Love Like Jesus: Building Community
This week, as we continue unpacking our new mission and vision we are focusing on the priority of building community. It might seem funny that this would be one of the key priorities of our new mission and vision because it seems like something natural that we should be doing as a church. However, building a thriving, healthy, and united community is actually pretty difficult because it involves relationship and relationships can be messy. This was true for Jesus and his first faith community--the twelve disciples. What we see from this first faith community is that the key to building community is centred around discipleship. Understanding the implications of what it means to be a disciple is crucially important. By committing to a deeper level of discipleship, we will be transformed into an unstoppable force that loves like Jesus.
