Stewarding the Church

Rev. Chandler Stokes

Sunday, October 20, 2013

“Whoever loves their dreams of the Christian community more than the community itself becomes its destroyer,” said Dietrich Bonhoeffer. There is a tension between what we long for the church to be, and what it actually is. But the heart of the Gospel is found with accepting those whom Christ has called—including new ones. We consider how to love an imperfect institution, and what discipline, hope, and love it takes to do so. A sermon on Isaiah 55:1-5.
