The Holiest Moment
In one of the books of Chuck Colson (The Body), I recall a wonderful quote from Carl Henry:
"The holiest moment in the church service occurs when the family of faith, inspired by prayer, praise, preaching and sacrament exit the doors of the building to be The Church, extending the light and love of Christ to all who might inquire, hurt or hunger in the community at large."
As another more grass-roots preacher once said, "At some point you have to push back from the Gospel table, stop eating, and go out and act in the power of that which you have ingested."
Think about it.
