From Memorial Baptist Church in Pasadena, TX
Life is messy. For some of us, that scares us to no end. We don’t know what to say, what to do, how to engage or how to help. Many step into community tentatively, secretly hoping it will not be messy. We want good friends, loving community, and easy comfortable enjoyable conversation. But the reality is that every true Christ-centered community will have its difficulties. Christian community, by necessity and design, is messy. We are sinners, the world is broken, and God is at work. In the gospel story he has written his grace and love shine more beautifully than ever in the messiness of our lives.
