Along with the preached word, there’s another important aspect central to the life of a church: how the members of the body interact throughout the week.
Tony Payne heads the Center for Christian Living at Moore College in Sydney, Australia. He’s also a director at Matthias Media. One of Tony’s most well-known books is The Trellis and the Vine, but today he’s been summoned to the bunker to chat up his work in progress, addressing speech in the Christian community.
How does speech—outside of the formal worship service—shape, inform, and impact the Christian community? In his work, Tony considers how members of the body should minister to one another for the purpose of edification by considering how several passages in the New Testament apply to today’s church.
