The Church: An Outpost of Service and Love

From James Bryan Smith in his book, The Good and Beautiful Community:

Communities become others-centered when they are steeped in the narrative of the kingdom of God. They know that their community is an outpost of the Kingdom of God, a place where grace is spoken and lived for as long as is needed. The value of a church is not in its longevity but in its love. The success of a church is not in its size but in its service to the people and the community.
