What has “All My Hope” revealed to you about the nature of church family? How has this challenged some of the “typical” ways we view church community?
In many ways! I'm so glad we are not a church that just comes and listens to sermons, but one that also puts into practice in our lives what we are hearing. I see this being done not only among each other, but also reaching out to our community.
"But be doers of the word, and not hearers only, deceiving yourselves. For if anyone is a hearer of the word and not a doer, he is like a man who looks intently at his natural face in a mirror. For he looks at himself and goes away and at once forgets what he was like. But the one who looks into the perfect law, the law of liberty, and perseveres, being no hearer who forgets but a doer who acts, he will be blessed in his doing." James 1:22-25
