The Church That Jesus Builds

For those who don’t know yet, a new issue of BodyLife, has just been posted at Lifestream.org. I like to bookmark a place on the blog so that others can interact on it as well. I don’t claim to have the definitive answers on any of these things, but I hope by writing about them it stimulates thought and conversation that draws us closer to Jesus and his work in the world. So feel free to struggle with its content if you like and let’s see what we all can learn.

The lead article in this issue is entitled The Church That Jesus Builds and is designed to help people on the search to discover the value of New Testament body life and encourage that undeniable hunger to find real relationships with others on the journey of being transformed into his likeness. Here’ is an excerpt:

I’ve seen that happen so many times since. Thinking we can make church life better by organizing it, we almost always unwittingly sacrifice it to the institutional needs that bear so little fruit. Church life is the natural fruit of people growing in Jesus and in friendships with people near them. It isn’t always easy to find people with that kind of passion, but Father has some interesting ways to connect them.
