Most people understand church as a building or a place where people gather for religious practices and reasons. However, the purpose of the Church is far greater than what is commonly understood. This week’s praxis of ‘community’ highlights God’s intent for ‘the Church’. A community of people through which God relates, expresses, and establishes His love, plans, and purposes for the world. Community is not the practice of ‘coming’ to church but ‘becoming’ the Church – a church full of imperfect people shining the light of a perfect God.
