My dad (fr. dave) wrote a definition of the church for this past sundays sermon and I thought it was awesome. This really explains who the church is better than anything I have ever read. Enjoy.

The Church is the community of people who were purchased for God by the payment of Jesus’ blood.
It is where Jesus lives by His Spirit;
It is where the spiritual gifts, given to the people of God by the Spirit of God, are seen and active;
It is where the Word of God (the Bible) is faithfully and accurately taught and applied;
And it is where the Sacraments (the grace giving rites of the Church) are given, shared and enjoyed.

It is through the Church that the ministry of Jesus continues on the earth;
That the Good News about who Jesus is, and what he did for us, is brought to others;
That the restoring of our broken relationship with God is offered and given,
And that God’s Kingdom is declared to the whole world.

Here is an original song written by me and my father.

Note: it was cold in the church and yes that is my beard…Ive been a little lazy and it’s going back to goatee next week.

Let me know if you want chords for this song and what you think.
