Sermon One for all and all for one – CONNECT

This week we continue our sermon series Simply Following: Following Simply by looking at the critical theme of connections. All throughout the gospel words like fellowship and communion, community, body, and family all point us towards the theme of connection. Connecting is an unspoken element of love. Deep and abiding love means intimate connection.. We cannot be Christ followers in isolation. We cannot do it alone. You cannot do without God. We cannot do it with out each other. In order for us to love God, love others, and serve the world, we must invest in intimate connections. We must treat each other as persons with fears fears and pains and struggles and joys as real and as deep as our own.

Scripture:  1 John 4:7-13, 21
