Posted by Kristy Tarrant at May 03, 2013
John 15:5 says, “I am the vine; you are the branches. If you remain in me and I in you, you will bear much fruit; apart from me you can do nothing.” As always, Jesus tells it like it is, and the news can seem a bit disheartening. Apart from Jesus we can do nothing. He doesn’t say we will accomplish a little bit, or that we’ll do fairly well. We can do nothing apart from him. Nothing of value. Not a thing that has eternal implications. But there is hope in the preceding... Read More »

“Community” …As a professor of Health Care Administration, I say that word a lot in courses such as Special Populations, Public Health, and Health Policy. But no textbook can truly provide the meaning God intended that word to carry.  Community is not just a word to describe a group of people with commonalities. In the Christian context it is much deeper. Community is loving your neighbor as you love yourself (and not that pseudo love, but that 1 Corinthian-Chapter-13 ... Read More »

How do you spell “COMMUNE-ity”?

Posted by Kristy Tarrant at March 05, 2013
“It is not good for man to be alone.” We were created to live and thrive in community. It is a vital part of our being created in the image of God. Referring to the Trinity, one theologian referred to God as “a Sweet Society”. When we sinned, the first result was broken community. Sickness and death followed. Jesus risked his reputation and the credibility of his story by tying them to how his followers live and care for one another in community. [1] When we are baptiz... Read More »
