1 Corinthians. 1:9 God is faithful, by whom you were called into the fellowship of his Son, Jesus Christ our Lord.
When I think of gatherings of the Christian community, I often think that it is not by accident that the specific people gathered are together at any given point in time. “It’s not by accident that we are here today,” could serve as an every Sunday call to worship or an opening prayer for any church gathering. God will work to bring and make meaning of our times together and we have a profound need, one for another, in the Christian community.
Questions for reflection:
When have you experienced God calling you to some gathering or some work? What has that sense of calling felt like? What words or images would you use to describe such and experience?
