Church Redefined

Growing up the church was a building with a steeple, stained glass windows, kneelers, pews and a place you only went to on Sunday morning.

I see now what a narrow definition that was. Church has been dramatically redefined especially right now.

Church is the devotion piece your friend emails you to help you during these uncertain times.

Church is your niece and nephews drawing and writing messages of love on the driveway outside your mom’s window.

Church is a coworker sending you a Bible verse with a specific prayer for you and your family.

Church is leaving the last roll of paper towels on the shelf because some one else might need it more.

Church is witnessing a twenty-something young man help load groceries into an elderly woman’s car.

Church is loving and serving your neighbors in new and creative ways.

Church is the prayer you speak.

Church is living like Jesus.

Be the church.

“for all of you who were baptized into Christ have clothed yourselves with Christ.” Galatians 3:27
