Thank you so much for this post, Eric. It's one of those incredibly intersections. For the past few days, I've been studying for an upcoming message called "Carriers" in a collection that focuses on our identity in Christ. The focus of the my study was trying to discover if Joshua ever invested in anyone because of the obvious fallout after his death. And voila! You reiterated this fact. What a sobering baton we have been handed. Thanks for this post and for your work - I value it. Steve McCoy (The 360 Church, Sarasota)

How long does it take not to be a newbie and be included. Many members have been there for years doing life together, raised their children together, and never reach out of their group (cliques) to include others on a regular basis. You see them out during the week together or hear theirs stories on Sunday morning about the good time they had with... while out to dinner this past week. You can even be a member of their Sunday School class.
