The Best of We – Presence

threeThe third message in the Best of We series considers faithful participation in the ministry of a congregation by one’s presence.

The message looks to the work of German theologian Dietrich Bonhoeffer, whose reflection upon Christian fellowship invites Christians to imagine the beauty of sharing “life together under the Word.”

Christian fellowship is not a right; rather, it is a privilege and a blessing. The gift of fellowship allows Christians to share “life together” in gracious anticipation of their eternal fellowship, which is the hope they proclaim! So, Christians participate by their presence, because one cannot share “life together” if he is not present in the life of the community.
