Loving community enough to share it.

Last week at Enoch’s Path, we were visited by a friend from the RCA. One of the best things he said all night was that we have something pretty special with our community, and it’s so special that we need to not dishonor it by keeping it to ourselves.

One of the biggest tensions with me (and maybe others) has been this whole “marketing” piece when it comes to “being” or “living-out” church. How do we let other people know that they can be loved, and empowered to bless the world through our community without sounding “modern” or “seeker” or whatever?

This continues to be a rub, but one worth wrestling with. Last night, my partner in ministry Eric came up with some pretty creative ideas for this, and I am anxious to see the end result.

As we seek to spread the word, without “spreadin the word” so to speak, I hope that we continue to keep our focus on what it means to be a church community. I pray that we continue to focus on listening to where God leads us to be a blessing.

Anyway, if anyone else out there wrestles with this, please comment and help us out.
