YF+ inspires us all to be church

A church is it’s people

Tonight at YF+ we had discussions around a reading from Matthew where Jesus lists his disciples with their job, family name, place they came from and from our discussions came these quotes:

“Community makes church special

We can all play our part in looking after everyone

We are not defined by one thing, we should get to know people as more than that

The community is what makes church church

We shouldn’t be putting people into boxes”

These are some of the things our young people said and they were so inspirational we felt their words deserved to be shared wider and reach more than just those in the group. Our whole church could benefit from a reminder to check in with a few more people, to get to know someone deeper than their job or age, and if we all do this we will be a stronger church and community.
