It has been said that we, the Church, are the Body of Christ. We are His hands and feet. We are Jesus embodied, enfleshed, in real ways. This is an overwhelming thought, to be sure.

A religious leader asked Jesus "Teacher, which is the greatest commandment in the Law?" Jesus replied: “‘Love the Lord your God with all your heart and with all your soul and with all your mind.' This is the first and greatest commandment. And the second is like it: 'Love your neighbor as yourself.' All the Law and the Prophets hang on these two commandments." (Matthew 22:36-39)

Hmmm. Loving God and loving neighbor. Sounds simple doesn't it? But it isn't.

We live out this call to 'love neighbor’ in various ways. It might be hospitality and allowing our facilities to be used. It might be in mission moneys sent to agencies locally and abroad. It might be through newspaper, TV, radio and billboard ads.

We put Jesus on display best, we think, when we do it in person—delivering meals on wheels, visiting someone at Hilltop, driving someone who is homebound to church, befriending someone at Discovery House or Oak Haven, loving on persons who have to work Christmas Eve.

Jesus was not too holy to get his hands dirty. We'd like to believe that we aren't either. Come and share the journey. Join us as we seek to be God's people in service to and in ministry with a hurting and broken world.
