A Lesson for May 19th

People make a church (R. Shaw graphic)

Ephesians 4:15 But speaking the truth in love, we must grow up in every way into him who is the head, into Christ, 16 from whom the whole body, joined and knit together by every ligament with which it is equipped, as each part is working properly, promotes the body’s growth in building itself up in love.

One of the strengths of the Presbyterian Church is that we appreciate having a diversity of opinions when must make a difficult decision. We often invite people outside our membership to give their opinions. Since people with other points of view can more easily see holes in our arguments.

Even after making a decision Presbyterians may continue to disagree with one another and occasionally disagree forcefully. Yet if we can speak the truth in love, disagreeing without attacking, we will grow and build a stronger community.
