We live in a society that is constantly dividing. We label people, assigning them different camps and embracing a sense of “us” vs. “them.” You only need to mention COVID-19, and immediately “vaccinated” versus “unvaccinated” springs to mind.
Jesus never called us to sit in our own camps, across a great divide. He called us to come alongside others. To create an atmosphere of “on earth as it is in heaven” and run parallel with the Kingdom of God.
It’s time to redefine the world’s understanding of what it means to be part of a church community.
