Practice what you preach: Love your neighbors

“The act of loving and serving people is sharing the gospel. When people are shown love and compassion, it stirs hope within them and a desire to seek this God whose people love them so much,” reads a church website. Yet, sharing Christ’s compassion for and with neighbors can be hard in the face of burnout, the persistence of systemic sin and doubts about what to do next. In an article written for the Calvin Institute of Christian Worship, an institution devoted to worship renewal in the Trinitarian tradition, Joan Huyser-Honig explores the what it's like to become a congregation that sees joining with others in service as an act of worship. Also see the companion article, “How Churches Meet Their Neighbors.”
