The Grace of Christ be with you!
The church is, perhaps above all else, a labor of love. As such, we do not labor in it to earn the favor of God or the praise of other members. Instead our joyful task is to build reconciled relationships with one another based on our reconciled relationship to God through faith in Christ. How?
Greet all who join in work of church with hospitality.
Reconcile your differences with others when possible.
Accept own fault for failure but share credit for success.
Treat the work of others with due consideration.
Initiate collaboration with others in work of church.
Take the time to get to know and understand others.
Undermine competitive instincts with cooperative acts.
Delight in (rather than covet) the success of others.
Exercise your faith at church to prepare for work in world.
Share God’s blessings by being a blessing to others.
Gratitude is a central element in understanding the parable of the Laborers in the Vineyard & the church. All else being equal, the church is called to be grateful for what we have rather than bitter for what we can imagine that we deserve.
Studies show that gene expression in humans is influenced by social position. Those who perceive themselves in a lower social rank have reduced immune responses. Gratitude helps the church promote the health of ‘the least of these.’
