I came across this statement today. It struck me so strongly that I listened and listened until I could type it.
It starts with the most influential… actually loving one another and scheduling appointments to get together and to work on a friendship. Not just hosting events.
When Christians think of unity they think of events. Events are nothing more than political statesmanship.
Unity is really less about doing events together and it’s more about doing life together and building friendship. — Mark Driscoll | Redeem Cities 2010: Mark Driscoll Session 2
This applies to pastors working together. And to everyone else in the church.
