Let me tell you about my family… the church!

Posted by on Apr 11, 2011 in blog links, community, fellowship | 1 comment

As many of you know, I think that it is very important that followers of Jesus Christ recognize and live with one another as brothers and sisters (real brothers and sisters, not just honorific “brothers” and “sisters”). Plus, I would add that these relationships (real relationships) must exist apart from (and perhaps in spite of) the divisions that are caused by “church membership.”

Eric from “A Pilgrim’s Progress” has been writing alot about church as family lately. I don’t know how many more posts like these he is going to write, but I wanted to highlight what he’s written so far:

Family Edifying Dialogue

Family Permanence and Intimacy

I’m glad that more people are examining the importance of treating other Christians as brothers and sisters!
