We live in a new time.
It's the time of "self".
So much of the unrest and disillusionment we see today is as a result of people being focused on "self". Can I get rich? Can I get ahead? Can I get noticed? It's culminated in a culture whereby everything is more than a bit broken.
1 Corinthians 12:12 - For just as the body is one and has many members, and all the members of the body, though many, are one body, so it is with Christ. 13 For kin one Spirit we were all baptized into one body—Jews or Greeks, slaves or free—and mall were made to drink of one Spirit.
Jesus encourages "unity in the Church" as Paul puts it in his first letter to the church in Corinth.
That takes community.
That takes togetherness.
That takes helping one another.
That takes supporting one another.
That takes, sometimes, sacrificing for one another - giving to one another and encouraging one another.
That's what we try to be all about here at UCB Ireland.
