We seek to bless the greater Carlisle PA area.

//This is what Church is….

We found this on YouTube the other day. Love it. This is Church at its best!!

Here is a quote we use at Engage to summarize what it means to be the church in post-Christian secular North America:

When He (Jesus) called His society (the Church) together Jesus gave its members a new way of life to live. he gave them a new way to deal with offenders–by forgiving them. he gave them a new way to deal with violence–by suffering. He gave them a new way to deal with money–by sharing it. He gave them a new way to deal with the problems of leadership–by drawing upon the gifts of every member, even the most humble. He gave them a new way to deal with a corrupt society–by building a new order, not smashing the old. He gave them a new pattern of relationships between man and woman, between parent and child, between master and slave, in which was made concrete a radical new vision of what it means to be a human person. — John Howard Yoder

    Engage – you never cease to bless my life. Thanks for sharing this. It’s so encouraging to think that this is where we are heading and not stay where we have been.

    Thanks,
    Sandi
