The Irresistible Magnetism of a Loving Church

loving churchWhere true love flourishes, its magnetism is all but irresistible.

As the late Bishop Stephen C. Neill has written,

“Within the fellowship of those who are bound together
by personal loyalty to Jesus Christ,
the relationship of love
reaches an intimacy and intensity unknown elsewhere.

Friendship between the friends of Jesus of Nazareth
is unlike any other friendship.
This ought to be the normal experience
within the Christian community…
Where it is experienced,
especially across the barriers of race,
nationality and languages,
it is one of the most convincing evidences
of the continuing activity of Jesus among men.”
