    “A Christian community should do as Jesus did: propose and not impose. Its attraction must lie in the radiance cast by the love of brothers.”*

    I think the church I am a member of comes very close. Come worship with us. I have been so pleased at the way our group has pulled together helping others in need, financial and otherwise.

    Also, we, though small, have always met and exceeded out budget. This, in the last few years, when many churches are struggling financially. In case you are wondering, I have never heard a sermon on money or tithing at our church.

    I hope you find the church you desire. I really believe there are not very many around. The Church of the Savior in DC is one.

    Jesus did radiate love, and forgiveness, and people still wanted him dead.

    A Christian community should...

    serve the neighborhood in which it located

    reflect the neighborhood in which it serves -- age, race, ethnicity, language, etc.
