Needing Each Other During Church
Eric Carpenter at A Pilgrim's Progress writes a short post about how we need each other when we assemble with the church. We can all speak to each other during the church meeting for mutual edification. I really don't have any experience with churches that do this, but after so many years of not having it, I certainly know what can happen when there is no mutual edification during the meeting. Mutual edification is pushed back into a place where people need to scramble to look for other ways for it to happen. So much so that it's possible for mutual edification to not happen at all. I wonder what it would be like to have a church that engaged with each other the way that is spoken of in 1 Corinthians 11-14. I hope to find out someday.
