We currently don’t “belong” to a particular church in the community.  We feel two things strongly on our hearts

 

  1. Not to forsake the gathering together (though we know that whenever two or more Christians are together we are “gathering together” but we want to do this specifically on Sunday – to be a part of the body of Christ gathering together in the town, in the country, in the world (time zones apart!!)
  2. To build relationships in the body of Christ – regardless of denomination.  We belong to the body of Christ, because of the Jesus and the cross – that is why we belong in the same family.

 

So this year we are going to be visiting different churches, not as visitors but as local brothers and sisters.  I hope that doesn’t sound too “lofty” and “spiritual” but we hope it will be a reality – that as we regularly touch base with Christians, across the town, that we will build relationships, that we will be able to help out with any of their church and needs (working bees, ministry initiatives etc) and support them in any personal needs as well.  This is what friends do – more so brother and sisters.

 

We already know many Christians in the town, so it won’t be like facing a new church every week though the expressions of worship will differ and this will be in itself a learning curve, especially for our children.    We are also challenged though that building relationship takes more than going to church together.  If we are truly to build relationships with a wide circle of Christians we need to open our home, free up our schedule and be hospitable.
