This week, it is easy, Peter talks about stones, about being stones, living stones. Psalm 31 talks about the rock that is the Lord supporting us, encouraging us. We are the stone; God is the rock. What this means is that the best sign, the best symbol of God’s presence is you, is us, the whole body of Christ. we are living stones, so what does that mean? How do we carry this foundational presence out into the world? How do we commit to building a church that transforms not just those inside, but those outside as well? How will our body-building strengthen our whole neighborhood and not just ourselves? This is the challenge of the living stones: discipleship for the transformation of the world.
