#18 THE CHURCH
What is it that defines a family? Is it a street address? Is it because they go on holiday together? Share the same bathtub? It’s not really any of these; the thing that really defines a family is the people in it! A family is made up of people. The church is the same. The church isn’t so much about timber, bricks and mortar, it’s about people, it’s about a community. God has always had a group of people called His church because it’s His way of letting people know He exists and cares for people of every age.
