Warning: Christian Community Doesn’t Work Without This

I don’t care what form in which it comes . . . be it organic church, simple church, house church, para-church organizations, or traditional churches that are strong on community . . . what I address in this conference message is off the radar screen for many Christians today.

And even if they’ve read or heard about it, when pressure is put upon them or their expectations aren’t met, they forget all about it.

Failure to lay hold of this element is why groups divide, split, and why members sometimes even begin attacking one another.

I could have entitled this talk “how to prevent a church split” as that title applies also.

However, Warning: Christian Community Doesn’t Work Without This is just as apt.

I delivered this message at the 2009 “Reimagining Church Conference” in Toronto, Canada.

You can listen to the talk in one of three ways:
