One of the great mysteries of life in the church is the question of and tension between bounty and scarcity. It is so much easier to talk in church of things “spiritual” like the Trinity, sin, hope, eternal life. Angels and incense –chalices not calluses. The stakes are rather low if lovely.
We who have experienced the living Christ in every generation are entrusted with a mighty treasure, the Good News; and the obligation to share it widely and fearlessly with the world.
“I see community as a group of people who are interested in being connected to neighbors, coworkers, fellow church members, people in the neighborhood, and even people we encounter in the neighborhood like shopkeepers, barbers, and service workers.”
