From Vern Rempel:
Paul’s words in 2nd Thessalonians are a great indication of the heart of Christian community: “We must always give thanks to God for you, brothers and sisters, as is right, because your faith is growing abundantly, and the love of everyone of you for one another is increasing.” (2nd Thessalonians 1:3). I think the core of our community is a delighted love for one another – that we care and learn and listen and rejoice wholeheartedly with each other. Whatever we say on any topic, this sets the tone. If we do not have this tone, I think the Bible joyfully and urgently and invites us to find it together.
