Pastor Jen poses the question, “What is the purpose for which church is created?” Pastor Jen reminds us of the people of Israel, and their 40-year trek out of Egypt which could have only taken them 11 days to complete, where they learned who God was and who they were supposed to be. God toldLch that we are also a community. We are living stones, the building blocks of Christ’s church which is made not by brick and mortar, but flesh and bloode. We are precious to Him, and meant to be a royal priesthood, or simply, someone to mediate Christ and His mercy and reconciliation to the world. She concluded, paraphrasing Teresa of Avila, “Christ has no hands on earth but yours and mine.”
