We celebrated the joining of four members to the church. Henry Neufeld’s message of welcome focussed on the church members as part of the body of Christ, and how the parts of the body work to make the whole greater than the sum of the parts. He contrasted a popular image of our faith life as a clear mountain stream at its source becoming less clean as it wends its way to the sea, with the historical truth that the church never was pure – that’s why the epistles were written. The key message was that God is come in flesh, God is love to us, and that the church is our expression of his love in the world, so much so that perhaps love should be the basis for church membership.
