All of us need safe places.
We need trusted relationships where we can lay out our stuff without fear of being condemned or judged. We need friends who can listen to our mistakes and failures and hold them in confidence.
Over and over, we try to make the point that the church isn’t a building, but the people. This means the sanctuary isn’t SOME PLACE—it’s SOMEBODY.
As Christ-followers, we’re the safe place for our friends, a sanctuary where those who seek God can find Him.
Jesus doesn’t live in a building, but in the lives of His disciples. As our hearts meet the hearts of our friends, they in turn meet the heart of Jesus.
