The Generosity of GraceWhen people experience the grace of God, it changes their lives and attitudes. Church is no longer a place they go to worship. Church is their family and worship is connecting with God and with our spiritual family. We Americans and most people around the world mostly get it wrong. We have twisted our understanding of what the Christian faith is all about. We see it all in material terms. Church is a building. Church membership is about numbers and worship is about the size of the crowd. I would submit to you that church is about gathering with one another, experiencing a community of people who love us and we love. It is about caring for one another and loving people we may not even like. It is about being genuine with one another, supporting one another, respecting one another and building one another up. Genuine churches grow because people find they can belong there in spite of some of the particulars of their lives.Holy Communion is about coming together and being reconciled with one another. It is about forgiving and being forgiven. It is about being reconciled to God and to our brothers and sisters in Christ. It is about accepting one another where we are and as we are.This is only possible because God is incredibly gracious to us. Grace Comes first!
