Invisible 6 days a week, Incomprehensible the 7th

Easter at LCBC was fantastic as we were able to enjoy our familiar patterns of being church over the festivities. The 1st time in two years because of the pandemic. Being able to journey together, with ‘one another’ as we remember the easter story of Jesus’ crucifixion and resurrection felt so important.

It’s this phrase ‘one another’ that holds so many possibilities and it is a phrase that is used over 100 times in the New Testament with x94 variations. These different ‘one another’ phrases begin to underline the importance of the gathering church community. Each different phrase an encouragement to see that the Church community is not an after-thought but actually God’s ‘Plan-A’.

‘One-another’ is a counter-culture idea because so much of life around is rooted in individualism. We did see a sense of community develop for a season during the pandemic but it seemed as if the general public got a bit tired of this and went back to ‘My rights, my life’ attitudes. The church is meant to be different but it doesn’t always get things right. This is part of the reason why we are focussing our teaching series in the months ahead on ‘one-another’. It feels good to be reminded of what it means to be a faith community rooted in the story of Jesus.

If you would like to find out more about the above or who we, London Colney Baptist Church are then we would be delighted to welcome you. If coming along on Sunday is not possible at the moment then feel free to contact me via phone or email. I’d love to hear from you.
