1 Corinthians 12:12 For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ.
One of the marks of the Presbyterian Church is that of connectivity. Did you know that the First Presbyterian Church of Barre is, effectively, a sister church to worshipping Presbyterian communities in Barnet, Burlington, East Craftsbury, Graniteville, the Ryegates, and West Topsham? Moreover, there are many retired Presbyterian ministers within Vermont and we share a connection, via the Presbytery of Northern New England with all of them. We are diverse congregations yet our common mission of making God’s love known unites us like a magnet pulling us together across the state. By some work of God’s Spirit, we are both unique and connected.
Question for reflection:
Think of a time that you have had connections with Christian people beyond our local congregation. What insights into being one, being together did you glean?
