We are called not to be a church in the community, to the community or even for the community. We are called to be a church with the community. It’s an important distinction and an important reminder. To shed more light on what this reality can look like in the everyday life of a church, you can listen to a video interview with Dennis Easter if you haven’t already checked that out. Or you can get a hold of Brandon Hatmaker’s new book Barefoot Church—and excellent read with a lot of great stories.
