Unity within a spread out group like a multi-site church. that was one of the main topics last week at One Life Core. These are my notes on the night and some of my own commentary.
A shared language and shared ideals help people that aren’t together all the time keep unity with one another. If I’m working at the same goal as my brothers in the east side and in Henderson and Mt.Vernon, I don’t have to see them every single day to share my life with them. Using the same language helps us put emphasis on the same things.
Have you ever seen a movie that was awful but you enjoyed being with your friends so much that you remember it being a good movie? It’s like that with church programs. The connection to the people you are with is what makes it good or bad.
Like Bret said, let us focus on connecting and befriending and meeting instead of making up a slew of events and programs. The trick is that we are so stuck in a program paradigm that we’d make a program to make more connections, but we’re getting there.
