Contentment with Christ’s Body, the Church

The Gospel Coalition 2014 Clarus Regional Conference


Are you happy with your church? Would you change anything? In this 54-minute session, Thabiti Anyabwile, pastor at Anacostia River Church in the Washington, D.C. area, argues that, if we’re going to find contentment with our local churches, we need to train ourselves to see God present in the congregation.

When we look at our churches, it’s easy to list the things that we’d change or that we don’t like. But we can find true contentment with our churches if we train ourselves to see God present in our people. He is working constantly both in and through each member of the Body of Christ. As you minister to your people today, remember that God is at work in their lives.
