Recently this word—fellowship—has been in the headlines of our daily experience, thanks to the popular movie adaptations of J. R. R. Tolkin’s Lord of the Rings trilogy.


In the first book and movie, entitled, Fellowship of the Ring, J.R.R. Tolkien describes the camaraderie of a diverse group of people who came together around a central purpose. Called "the fellowship of the ring," their goal is to destroy the power of the Dark Lord that is somehow resident in his ring. The persons in this fellowship are different in many ways, yet they are united in their opposition of the Dark Lord. That is the source of their fellowship.


The reason the fellowship of the church is so weak today is not because we do not have enough fellowship events. Rather our weak fellowship is due to the lack of time we spend together doing the hard work of the kingdom, sharing time as it were in the foxholes of ministry, together making a difference in the lives of the hurting people of our world.
