I am reading Trevin Wax’s new book, This Is Our Time, to review for BH Publishing. I was struck by these words on page 40:
At its best the church should include people you don’t like very much, people you may disagree with on some points of theology or politics, people you don’t have much in common with, aside from the grace of God. A good church will cultivate relationships that are solid enough for people to say, “I love you, and you’re wrong.”
I find this fascinating and intriguing to think over. God puts together and builds His church with many different types of pieces, but they all fit. Even different pieces work together for the larger purpose.
