Diakonia of the United Church of Canada
Community is essential for DUCC members to fulfill their vision of a ministry of accompaniment.
The work of creating and sustaining community is rewarding, but it is not always easy. The scriptural accounts of the early Christian community of believers demonstrates this truth. When passions run deep there is a lot at stake and conflicts can emerge. Again, the biblical imperative to “Carry each other’s burdens, and in this way you will fulfill the law of Christ” (Galations 6:2) serves as a guide. When we know each other, walk with each other, care for each other and share in the joys and sorrows of our lives, God is made known.
