a church that looks like the world to come

Some folks wonder what church leaders spend their time talking about: If you could be a fly on the wall you’d hear our elders discussing how to be a community as described in this picture (from a book we’ve been talking through over the last months).

God has called Christians to be about following Christ when it’s so easy to become polarized by the million tribal markers that we apply to ourselves and others. But we’re working, thinking and praying at how to be a “fellowship of the differents”, a “church that looks like the world to come.” And we haven’t perfected it, but we’re working at leading in that direction.
