The word "fellowship" sounds very Christian-ese. It is often used to describe the social aspect of Christian gatherings. Coffee and donuts, pizza and games, chatting before church - these are common images of what we call Christian fellowship. But what if there was more? What if Jesus had a richer, deeper, fuller meaning of fellowship than many of us have known? The Bible brings clarity to this question and an incredible call to be the community that belongs to Him and to one another.
