God’s Parish

Text: John 17:18-23, 1 Corinthians 1:10

Summary:We began our Last Kingdom series with a history of God’s People as revealed in the Old Testament. We then zoomed in to God’s Church from the New Testament to present day and took a closer look at a few believers who expanded the Kingdom through care and courage. Today, we zoom in further to God’s Parish here at Wildwood, and the call of Jesus for unity. Jesus was adamant His followers be united (John 17), and the Apostle Paul would continue to call the early Church to be unified (1 Corinthians 1:10). Borrowing a phrase from the US Constitution, Wildwood must strive to become “a more perfect union.”  But it raises one of the most important questions we will ever ask: “Unified around what?”
