About a year and a half ago, I wrote about what an NCT church should look like in prac­tice. A friend has just writ­ten a beau­ti­ful post on what a New Covenant church should be like at his blog Incur­able God Loverhttp://incurablegodlover.wordpress.com/2014/07/14/church-new-covenant-style/

All_In_the_Family_CastChurch New Covenant style is a lov­ing, learn­ing, and ordered mess; just like any fam­ily. Your fam­ily is a mess, but there is (or should be) some sem­blance of nat­ural sym­me­try and order evi­dent in your daily lives. Fam­ily mem­bers don’t quit on each other, at least they shouldn’t. When some­one gets upset, they aren’t look­ing to leave and go down the street and become part of another fam­ily. Such an idea is ludi­crous. No, they learn how to work through their prob­lems and in that problem-solving they learn how to com­mu­ni­cate bet­ter and know and under­stand each other bet­ter. Doing church New Covenant style is like that.

Amen, brother.
