Moroni 6:5-6

"And the church did meet together oft, to fast and to pray, and to speak one with another concerning the welfare of their souls.
And they did meet together oft to partake of bread and wine, in remembrance of the Lord Jesus."
Moroni 6:5-6

I love this idea of how church should be.  Not like a fashion show, an exclusive club, or a graduate school, but more like Sinners Anonymous (without as much anonymity).  A place where we go and talk about our lives, and our challenges, and our struggles in letting go of our addiction to sin and remembering and embracing God.  A support group for all of us, where we help each other to become the better people that we want to be.
Maybe not only church, but the world should be more like that.  A place where we build up and encourage and recognize that we all have faults.  A place where we speak as equals and friends, helping each other to hold on to hope, and believe that we can change.  That today can be better than yesterday.
Let's work on that today.  Having that hope, treating other people as equals struggling with similar challenges, and helping each other improve and come to God.
