“For in Christ you are all sons of God, through faith. For as many of you as were baptized into Christ have put on Christ. There is neither Jew nor Greek, there is neither slave nor free, there is no male and female, for you are all one in Christ Jesus.”

- Galatians 3:26-28

"But now in Christ Jesus you who once were far off have been brought near by the blood of Christ. For he himself is our peace, who has made us both one and has broken down in his flesh the dividing wall of hostility by abolishing the law of commandments expressed in ordinances, that he might create in himself one new man in place of the two, so making peace, and might reconcile us both to God in one body through the cross, thereby killing the hostility.”

- Ephesians 2:13 


“The idea of church is amazing, but Christians are challenging.  The idea of love stirs you, but practicing love costs you because love is hard.”

“Our isolation has deprived us of healthy local tribes with whom we share values and goals and ways of life that uplift us, and so we fall into anti-tribes, defined by what we’re against rather than what we’re for. It’s a sorry substitute for real belonging, but it’s better than nothing. We might not have much in the way of community, but at least we aren’t as ludicrous as those sanctimonious liberals on MSNBC, or as absurd as those blowhard conservatives on Fox. There’s something comforting in joining people of a similar mind-set (“we”) to denounce “them.”

- Ben Sasse
