When reading your Bible, have you ever been tempted to skip over Romans 16. After all, it’s just a list of names, most of which you can’t pronounce and people you’ve never heard of. But, wait. There’s more there than it might appear. Could it be that the Holy Spirit preserved this part so we could catch a glimpse of the tender affection that characterizes what we’re calling a “church of the heart”? Dan makes some observations about the nature of the community of the church.
Dan ministers among a community of House Churches called The Summit Fellowships. He encourages a simple, relational and generally "free-range" practice of Christian faith. He is a writer and a teacher. He and Jody, his wife of 40 years, live in Portland, OR. Their blog is at www.tween2worlds.us
