Must-Haves in community

For today's Q&A, Jamie Harms sat down with Pastor Brett Gilchrist. Below are the questions she asked him and a summary of his answers. Brett preached Sunday from Colossians 3:1-17. During the message, he highlighted eight characteristics from verses 12-17 that disciples must put on to function within the church community — compassion, kindness, humility, meekness, patience, bearing with one another, forgiveness, and love.

Just before the message, we had the privilege of hearing Romans 12:3-8 read in French by a dear brother, beautifully foreshadowing the diversity we will enjoy in the future as believers from every nation, from all tribes and peoples and languages, worship the Lamb of God together (Revelation 7:9).
