A post from Bishop Kanouse.
I celebrate DiscipleLife every time I gather with the saints at worship, around the Word and the Eucharist. God comes alive in the community of the faithful who hear the Word read, reflect through the sermon, join in prayers and receive the real forgiveness of sins in bread and wine. Jesus is alive! That's reason to celebrate! When we gather in assembly DiscipleLife comes alive even more powerfully as we know ourselves to be not just individual Christians or congregations unto ourselves; but we are connected for mission. DiscipleLife is, among other things, the people of God gathered in God's grace! Relationships of love.
