Shared Life: Together with God

1 John 1:3 says, "We declare to you what we have seen and heard so that you also may have fellowship with us; and truly our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son Jesus Christ."

The Elder is speaking of the message about Jesus' life, teachings, death, and resurrection: the "gospel." What he and others directly saw and heard in Jesus they have declared to others, and that message has in turn been passed on over many generations to us. And what happens as this good-news message is declared and heard and welcomed and lived out? The result is "fellowship": a "sharing in common," a "shared life," together with one another and also with God.

Join us as we come together on March 5 for Gathering 2022 to reflect on and celebrate our shared life together, our shared life with God!
