Local Worshipping Household

Muscle Man Cartoon CharacterEach local worshipping community was a unique part of the Jesus Christ community. When I looked in the mirror, I saw an elderly balding male. While my appearance was important to me, it was only one part of who I was. Scratch the surface and a multifaceted individual with all his likes, dislikes, and idiosyncrasies appeared. You were the same too. In the same way, the individual Christian community was also unique.✞

Incarnate Extension of Christ

Kate WillardThe Jesus community was an extension of the incarnation of Christ himself. She, the household, (for the word used to describe "church" was feminine), was a conglomerate, a Me with her own personality like any other body! She may have the characteristics of a jolly, middle-aged lady or even a starchy spinster with her head in a book. In that way, the make up of each and every congregation was different.✞
