On Sunday, we'll begin a new series called, "Foundations". We're going to look at what the Bible says about the Church. I hope you'll join us!
Scott Sauls has a great piece about the local church, and about many of the criticisms leveled against her. Here's a little taste, but, I'd encourage you to read the whole thing.
"In Life Together, Bonhoeffer said that those who love their dream of Christian community more than the Christian Community itself become destroyers of Christian community. He also said that the church, which may at times seem weak and trifling to us, is great and magnificent to God. Do we believe this? When tempted to hit eject on the local church, will we trust the infinite, perfect wisdom of God or our own finite, fallen instincts?"
