Christian Conversations: Negotiating Needs
John Hilker   -  

The Church is composed of many people who are also in various groups within the larger Body.  Jesus, in infinite wisdom, gave us the metaphor of the Church as his Body and each of us has a necessary role and is a vital part of the Body.  Yet we do not always agree on what needs to be done or how we should fulfill our call to ministry and mission in Christ’s name.  This Sunday we look back into the first books of the Bible to discover that Moses had to wrestle with this truth and still find a way to keep the people of God together.  Negotiating differing needs became an important part of his prophetic role.  Discover for yourself how we can navigate our differences, meet our various needs, and remain one Body.
