In Francis Schaeffer's The Mark of A Christian we read this amazing story that happened among the Brethren groups in Germany after World War II.
Last week, we noted that the early Church was formed by the proclamation of God’s Word. Thisis not new to the New Testament. Already, in Genesis 1, we read how God spoke and male and female were created. God’s very words are creative, they bring life! Yet, it is not life in the singular. It is life in community.
