Communal Spiritual Discernment

Filed under: Uncategorized — ptellison @ 9:16 am

Church bodies these days struggle to find ways of being with one another, even staying together as the Body of Christ as considerable energy is spent in ways that tend to pull folks apart. 

The Church has vast resources of critical scholarship and confessional writing. We have a long history of valuing the Bible, lifting it as the norming norm for our life, not only as individuals but our common life. We have always been encouraged, by the very nature of God’s three-personness, to form and sustain Christian community.

 

So what keeps us from discerning communally, together, how to sustain our church, centered on God for the sake of the Gospel who is Jesus Christ, by the Holy Spirit’s power?

 

That is what I want to know.   Peace to your house. Pat Taylor Ellison
