"What would most people say if they were asked, "What pops into your mind when you hear the word Christian?" What do you think most people would say? Legalistic? Judgemental? Intolerant? I am convinced that way too few of them would say, "The word that pops into my mind is love."

Yet love is precisely what we are to be known for. Even outsiders know the "inside" secret that love is to be the primary characteristic of our lives. Our Lord Jesus said, "By this all men will know that you are my disciples if you have love for one another." We are known for our positions on moral and ethical issues. We are known for being out-of-touch with today’s world. We are known for being "holier-than-thou." But how many people know us by our love?" - Rick Duncan, Pastor
