Don't Be Like the Seal on Shark Week

Published by: Robert Gangnon
January 14, 2013

We are coming up on two weeks since Passion 2013, and I have been very encouraged by some of the messages that I live streamed here in Minnesota.

One of the pastors who spoke at Passion 2013 had some interesting things to say about biblical community. Judah Smith, a pastor in Seattle, mentioned that living in Christian community is a lot like being a seal on shark week. Judah pointed out that it is always the seal that doesn’t travel with the pack in open water that the Great White shark targets for the kill.

So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.—Romans 12:5

 Let love be genuine. Abhor what is evil; hold fast to what is good. Love one another with brotherly affection. Outdo one another in showing honor. Do not be slothful in zeal, be fervent in spirit, serve the Lord. Rejoice in hope, be patient in tribulation, be constant in prayer. Contribute to the needs of the saints and seek to show hospitality.

Community at Bethlehem

Published by: Robert Gangnon
October 3, 2012

What a joy I count it that God has blessed Bethlehem with the Shepherd Group ministry! 

I noted in the Star article that I wrote back in August that “living a life in community and on mission is something that can easily get overlooked if I am not careful.” Bethlehem is so large that if I am not prayerful about community life it will get pushed back and other things will begin to take over.

So we, though many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another.—Romans 12:5
