‘I believe in one holy catholic church’

August 6, 2011
Rev. James Shackelford , Minot Daily News

In light of our recent catastrophe it is a good time to rehearse our faith. More than ever I believe in one church (In Greek: ekklesia) a people of God called into a community of peace, grace and mercy. We are not to be devoted to a building or a denomination but of being a people of God who display his peace, mercy and grace. We are to be one holy catholic church. Cath-olic in Greek is katholikos meaning "according to the whole." What is going to happen in Minot in response to this flood? It will be "according to the whole" community of faith.
