It has been a joy to prepare and give thought to the series Church is. Through various speakers we heard messages on Church is... Missional, Family, Ministry, One, Reconciling, Diverse, Generous, Gathering, Alive and Hopeful.
There is still much to say about the church. Karl Barth stated that “the Church exists…to set up in the world a new sign which is radically dissimilar to (the world’s) own manner and which contradicts it in a way which is full of promise." We are people of promise and we are charged to live out an alternative society before a watching world, a world that is increasingly becoming more divisive. There is much work to be done. In the words of the Apostle Paul, “if possible, so far as it depends on you, be at peace with everyone.” Romans 12:18 May God give us wisdom and grace for the journey.
