Something to Ponder

Excerpt from Rob Bell’s book, “Jesus Wants to Save Christians”:

“The church is Jesus’ body, a good gift for the healing of the world.

 It’s for the benefit of others.

 For the good of those who look different from us

 A church is an organization that exists for the benefit of nonmembers.

 This blessing extends even to our enemies.

 This truth about the Eucharist raises profound questions that a church must ask itself.  If  our church was  taken away – from our city, our neighborhood, our region – who would  protest?

 Only the people who are members?

 Only those who are a part of it?

 Only those who attend it’s services?

 Single mothers?

 Refugees?

 Athiests?”

 

Something to think about…
