Examiner.com article: Sunday 101: Spiritual growth is in everyday relationships

I’ve published another article for Examiner.com as the Raleigh Practical Christianity Examiner. This article is part of my “Sunday 101″ series and is called “Sunday 101: Spiritual growth is in everyday relationships.”

Too often, Christians rely on special events like conferences, revivals, camps, and retreats for spiritual growth. But, God created us to grow in a different manner: through our everyday, ordinary relationships with one another as we are connected to Jesus Christ.

Here is part of my article:

In Paul’s metaphor, we are those body parts, and we are connected to one another through our relationships with one another. He says that the church grows when every part does what he or she was created and gifted to do. As we talk to, serve, and encourage one another in our day-to-day lives, we help one another and the church grow in maturity toward Jesus Christ.
