There is no other form for the Christian life except a common one. Until and unless Christ is experienced as a living relationship between people, the Gospel remains largely an abstraction. Until Christ is passed on personally through faithfulness and forgiveness, through concrete bonds of union, I doubt whether he is passed on by words, sermons, institutions, or ideas. — Fr. Richard Rohr
We all know this to be true, don’t we? We feel it deep in our bones, in our souls even. It is the contrast formed by Christian community united in love for each other and committed to making the Kingdom of God tangible in the world around them that will truly introduce a skeptical world to Jesus. Missional Communities are the best vehicle that I have found to form this kind of common Christian life united around God’s mission in the world.
