Because the Letters column is a free forum for discussion, it should be understood that letters represent the position of the letter writer, not necessarily the position of the Herald or the Mennonite Brethren church.
The importance of assisting
Re “What do you want me to do with you?” (Intersection of faith and life, Spring 2018)
I wish to commend the writer of the article for touching on a vital mindset. It is a necessary approach to building community. It is a question or approach, also to interpersonal relations, that emphasizes the importance of assisting another on the turf, or in the context, of one who has suffered deep personal loss, asking: “What can I do with you?” Such ministry is not common.
So much to offer
I thought the article titled “The Holy Spirit Living in Us” (Features, January 2017) was amazing because it explained who the Holy Spirit is and what his relationship is with each of us.
A relationship with the Holy Spirit isn’t one that Christians talk about much. We seem to forget that the Holy Spirit is part of the Trinity and has so much to offer us. We forget the Spirit’s importance in our lives – especially because Christ promised to send the Holy Spirit after he had ascended to heaven. The disciples did not step outside until the Holy Spirit had come to their lives and had strengthen them.
It may seem that Christianity is just series of lists on what to do and not to do, but the author shows it’s just not dictating choices but offering an unforgettable journey with the Holy Spirit and living within God’s will.
