The Way

Jesus made community personal
By selecting twelve to be confidants.
To bond together as His apostles
And share the grace He grants.

Jesus made Himself available;
Always a part of a community
So that when two or more gather,
He is among them in unity.

Jesus uses community
To develop our devotion;
Getting people on track
And setting us in motion.

Jesus wants His love
To always be demonstrated
By the way we have loved;
By the way we have related.

The Lord’s Supper is an occasion
Of joy for the Christian Community
So look forward to communion
Each and every opportunity.

About Mark Shields

Mark volunteers as a member of the media ministry team at his church. A few years ago, he started an on-line Bible study guide called “This Day with God Devotional”. He uses this as a tool in his journey through the Bible. We live in a very busy world with busy schedules so this tool has helped him continue with daily Bible reading and study. Each of the studies are designed to help apply our faith in the work place, at school, or at home. Join him on this journey or check in every so often to read his thoughts.
