“Newbie Church” – Rev. Allan Brooks – 2 Corinthians 5:18-21


In Christ we are made new, no longer bound to the old ways of living. Our renewal is God’s work of reconciling us to Himself. We are made “newbie people,” reconciled to God. Together we are a “newbie church,” a congregation being renewed to God’s purposes and given a specific job: to participate in reconciling the world back to God. Our world is full of conflict and we have been given the task of extending Gods grace in the midst of it, providing hope and peace in the darkest and most chaotic of places. Little by little we participate revealing God’s Kingdom in the midst of our chaos, renewing and reconciling our world back to God.
