In Search of Intimacy, We Have Fostered Tribalism

Interesting Sunday morning insight:


"Cultural tribalism refers to the subdivision of society in groups who come together by a shared or specific type of thinking or behavior. In popular culture, cultural tribalism may also refer to a way of thinking or behaving in which people are loyal to their social group above all else, or, derogatorily, a type of discrimination or animosity based upon group differences."


There are plenty of places in our nation to share sacraments in separation; we might need rather to simply come together in holy community!


We seem to have somehow missed the bottom line truth: "I pray that they will all be one, just as you and I are one—as you are in me, Father, and I am in you. And may they be in us so that the world will believe you sent me." John 17:21 NLT


The human desire for intimacy with God and mankind, perhaps drives us toward separation in our search for true and meaningful interaction, which often leads to a new church plant.


This further fosters our tribalism and division, thus lessening our witness, the true evidence of the Body of Christ...the very goal of communion.


Lord have mercy!
