what makes a community extraordinary?

 

When people live in community marked by the gospel and moved by the spirit, God does work. They commit to one another. They grieve together, sing together, and eat, pray, and play together. They love, serve, honor, encourage, and provide for each other gladly. And they live on mission together. Hearts are healed, walls come down, and outsiders come in.

No competition. No pretense. No vain conceit. Just full hearts breaking bread and giving freely. It is nothing short of amazing. Most of us live in a shadow of what god intended for us. Life in community calls us into the light. Reclaiming scripture’s stunning vision of gospel-centered community, it inspires us to live in love unbounded.

Read it, live it, and join the movement: pull up a chair to the table and help unleash the power of extraordinary community.

 

I am grateful for this book, for it provides us this picture of the church that we desperately need to see in our day. Taken straight from Scripture, then buttressed with poignant illustrations and practical application, these pages drip with the depth of community that Christ has designed for His church.
