This Sunday at Dakota Community Church the plan is to continue our Summer 2013 series, “Building Community” (based on a portion of “Gospel in Life” by Tim Keller) with the ninth of ten sermons, entitled - “Serving One Another Through Forgiveness & Reconciliation.”
Forgiveness and Reconciliation. The fact that they exist as categories in need of addressing in a series on building community is a reminder to us that when sinful humans congregate, bad things sometimes happen. Sooner or later you and I are either going to get hurt, or we are going to be the cause of someone else’s hurt. The temptation in the face of this dangerous reality is to act like modern day playground designers and simply eliminate any possibility of pain.
That, however, would require the complete breaking of fellowship, something that the Bible is pretty clear about us NOT doing.
I hope you will read this week’s key scripture verses in advance and come to service ready to rejoice in the Lord and to receive His word thankfully.
