“Imagine a church where every single person without exception comes to consume, to get something–from others. They are there, every single one of them, to receive, and not one would get what they came for.
“Now imagine a church where every single person without exception comes to love the other people there. They are there, every one of them, to give. Every single one will receive what they’re looking for.
“Hebrews 10:23-25 says ‘…stir up one another to love and good works…'”
We can’t stir up one another alone, there has to be others, there has to be community.
