"When the New Testament mentions “the church,” it is talking about the people—the body of Christ—who received the Holy Spirit and are sent to tell the Gospel.
"The Greek word ekklesia refers to “the gathered ones,” or believers called into community with God. The book of Acts ascribes emotions and actions to the church. “Great fear seized the whole church” (Acts 5:11) and “the church sent them on their way” (Acts 15:3). When you look at it this way, you’re not “going to church”—you are the church."*
Join together in spirit as the Church. We have a bond that distance cannot erase.
One of our best-loved hymns says that the church "on earth hath union with God the Three in One, and mystic sweet communion with those whose rest is won." We have a bond that even death cannot erase. We remember that especially this week.
