Publisher's Summary

Imagine...an interconnected group of people who entrust themselves to each other. You can speak of your pain, and someone responds with compassion and prayer. You can speak of your joys, and someone rejoices with you. You can ask for help with sinful struggles, and someone prays with you. The goal of this audiobook is that these meaningful relationships will become a natural part of daily life in your church. 

With short chapters and discussion questions meant to be listened to in a group setting, Ed Welch guides small groups through eight lessons that show what it looks like when ordinary, needy people care for other ordinary, needy people in everyday life.

👏🏼What Church *Should* Be Like!!!!🤲🏼

🔥PRECISE & CONCISE!!🔥
The *exact* vision I've tried to describe & communicate & foster in the faith communities I've been part of the last 10-12 years!!
Ed, once again, provides clear & actionable wisdom for living the Christian life...
*NOTE* However, this is *just* for ministers & counselors & professional Christians (not bc they get paid, but bc they do it everyday). Those who are on the JV Team or just show up for Recreational scrimmages, just keep doing what you're doing & maybe one day everyone at your steeple-topped building will realize they're purpose in life is to cater to you & your edifica-..., Oh, I mean, your entertainment. Or, at least, comfort & coddle your conscience.
Everyone else, meaning those whom Jesus actually brought from death to life & are now indwelt by His Spirit, this basic text is Christianity 101, a fundamental pillar, the other side of the coin that says we're to love God with all our heart, all our mind, and all our strength, a coin by which we live according to both sides or neither of them. The message in this book is desperately needed today if the Church is to, once again, have any semblance of the Bride she's means to be.
That means this book is for ALL of us, because we're ALL ministers, ALL counselors, ALL "professional" Christians, if the Spirit of God dwells in us. There are no days off!! Our lives are NOT our own. We were BOUGHT with a price. The LOVE of God moves *toward* others: the hurt, the broken, the weary, the grieving, the struggling, the stressed & depressed, which should be ALL of us... if we're still breathing & have a heart beat. ("Sorrowful, yet always rejoicing.")
🔥THIS is the kind of community in which God rescued me from the obsession & compulsion of alcohol & drug abuse, and in which I was shown what it means to live like Christ, however, it wasn't in a church where I found this "love God, love others" community. It was Alcoholics Anonymous. When I did make it back to the Church, I was in for a shock, bc it was not anywhere close to manifesting & displaying the genuine humility, authentic selflessness, and real care & concern I experienced in those smoke-filled & coffee-stained rooms.

Thank you, Ed!!... Our God & Father, transform us into the Bride you greatly desire, a Bride who honors her Bridegroom by her joy & hope & generosity & grace!!

Helpful!

Short, concise, practical tools for living and moving into biblical community with others. I appreciate the practicality of this book and it’s chapters, as well as the reflection questions. Would be a good tool for group leaders and leadership teams within the church.
