Mediation: One of the great gifts God has given His church is the gift of fellowship, but too often we reduce its impact. A “Fellowship Hall” doesn’t ensure that a church truly celebrates fellowship. A “Pot Luck” can bring people together, but that’s only the very beginning of what God intends for our fellowship. Fellowship is not an “add-on” to our faith; it’s absolutely essential. As we continue our series, Faith for Exiles, we will see that God’s gift of fellowship is the exact thing that our isolated and lonely world needs. In worship this morning, take heart! Through Christ, we have fellowship with God and with one another.
