Thought for the Week from AMUA (15th - 21st July 2018)

CHURCH and COMMUNITY

 

The Church is the Body of Christ. The Gospels relate Jesus’ radical ministry expecting that the closeness and familiarity of first century life would be understood by its readers. And some of us do know what it is to belong – to family, social club, the street, suburb. But Jesus’ radical gospel stepped sideways from the village to the church, from the town to the church. WE ARE the Body of Christ. A community of the Spirit whose opus operandi is LOVE: Love which flows out to the village, town and city for it is there we will find our neighbour.

 

You shall love the Lord your God with all your heart, and with all your soul, and with all your strength, and with all your mind; and your neighbour as yourself. Luke 10: 27

 

Children are the focus of the love which motivates Mothers’ Union members in Trinidad and Tobago in the West Indies. They have created homework communities where children are received supervised assistance. ‘The interest in and the commitment to the children’s holistic development is deep and abiding.’ The Body of Christ embraces the community.
