Faith is a family business

The closing commendations of Paul’s letter to the Colossians on first glance might be mistaken for just a list of names but when we look closer it reveals much more. Paul was deeply committed to working in partnership with others and never considered himself a lone ranger. The commendations he ascribes to several individuals should give us cause to consider our role and service in the community of God and finally that we are family. Regardless of where we have come from we share a common destiny and the means to encourage one another to get there.

Colossians 4:7-18
