First John Family Chapel

firstjohnchapel (4) Last Friday Mike Owen led us in a meditation on the book of First John. After a good time of singing hymns Mike showed us through a highly participatory illustration of the difference between the concept of the family in modern Western cultures and the concept of the family in the Ancient Near East, as it would have been understood in biblical times. It brought some illumination to us about just how important it is that God is our Father and we are brothers and sisters of each other. He then read the whole letter of First John and asked us to meditate on it in light of what we had learned about God’s family and the love within it.
