Community Fellowship

John Calvin puts forward a very simple reason why love is the greatest gift: “Because faith and hope are our own: love is diffused among others.” In other words, faith and hope benefit the possessor, but love always benefits another. In John 13:34–35 Jesus says, “A new command I give you: Love one another. As I have loved you, so you must love one another. By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.” Love always requires an “other” as an object; love cannot remain within itself, and that is part of what makes love the greatest gift.

Only Non-White Church Member Appears On All Promotional Material

BARRINGTON, IL—When Dave Charles joined Hope Fellowship Church in Barrington, Illinois, he did so because the Bible teaching was sound and the congregation was welcoming and friendly. However, he soon observed a strange quirk in his church experience, namely, that every time the church photographer took pictures of a church event or of the morning service, Charles almost always found himself in the shot.

“It’s weird. There are three hundred people in the church, but it feels like he’s just taking pictures of me,” said Charles.

The single, 28-year-old IT professional also just so happens to be the only non-white member of the suburban church.

“The photographer actually started inviting me to all kinds of stuff,” said Charles. “A women’s luncheon, kindergarten awards ceremony, events and groups that I’m not even a part of. I guess he just wants to get people involved, but I’m pretty sure I’m the only one getting singled out.”

When asked about the inclusion of Charles in the photoshoots, photographer Geoffery Dylan said it had nothing to do with the man’s ethnicity. “Oh, I hadn’t even noticed he was a different race. We don’t see color here, we just see men and women made in God’s image. But now that you mention it, having him in the picture does highlight the diversity of the congregation. That’s a big deal for us.”

Mr. Charles has also reportedly been invited to join the worship team despite not having any musical ability whatsoever.
