Maranatha Moments: Kimchi Koinonia

 

My family and I have been attending Maranatha for a little over a year and in that time, we've been blessed by many brothers and sisters over many meals. I've seen how koinónia, the New Testament Greek for "fellowship" or "community", is a vital part of the vision of the church -- the pastors preach it and the members live it.  

Walking the Hard Path Together

"Be kind, for everyone you meet is fighting a hard battle."

That simple advice commonly attributed to Ian McClaren. It’s a call to be patient and extend grace to your neighbor not just because God commands you to, but because your neighbor is facing challenges you may know nothing about. Those around you are struggling. Like you, their lives are harder than they might appear. So be charitable. Be kind.
