On today’s episode of the Journeywomen podcast, I chatted with my friend and pastor from right here in Clarksville, TN, Luke Banner. Luke serves as the assistant pastor in my local church. It was so fun chatting about how community really is the Church, or the body of Christ, with Christ as our head. As members of the Body who worship Christ as their Lord and Savior, we are the Church. We are the congregation of worshipping believers. Christian community isn’t merely the frequency of interaction with someone, having a shared passion, or interest. Rather, christian community is the Church. Luke and I discussed the nitty gritty aspects of what it really looks like to do life together with brothers and sisters who may actually be very different than us. We talked about the importance of authenticity and seeking to really know and be known by our community.
This conversation is the beginning of a little series on the topic of Christian community. Be sure to subscribe to the podcast however you listen so that you won’t miss upcoming episodes on confession and conflict, praying together with other believers, individual and corporate worship, and celebrating God’s beautifully diverse design.
