- that reaches the broken world to bring a healing that can only come from Jesus Christ

- that does not get caught up in technicalities and politics but stays focused on the Lord

- that helps me understand

- that is more about helping others than about us

- that listens to the Holy Spirit and is bigger than man's efforts

- is honest and open-minded rather than self-righteous and dogmatic OR has donuts. I will be OK with either.

- who is loving and unafraid

- accepts people where they are in life and not just when they have achieved a level of "spiritualness"

- grows in the knowledge of God and His love for the world

- lifts up Jesus and redeems things like the environment, stewardship, the arts and philosophy

- that prays for one another

- that serves others, feeds the hungry, visits the sick and imprisoned

- lives a diversity of thoughts, opinions, ages, worship expressions and celebrates the differences

- is a soft place to fall; that is a daily part of my life; that doesn't feel like a wall; that is the heartbeat of Christ

- that knows me and loves me anyway

- impacts the community around them so that it can be a light for Jesus in people's lives

- that gets lost in worshiping Jesus and lingers in His presence

- that is the church throughout the week and not just on Sunday

- that is real and where people are not fake and has a passion to serve those in need

- acts like a family, reaches out to community, accepts all people

- that Jesus would be proud of

- that changes lives by drawing people to Christ

- whose whole heart is consumed with Christ and flows to others

- that is completely outward focused and selfless

- that will challenge our minds to learn God's Word and support each other in our walks with God

- that doesn't isolate and separate ourselves from "this bad world"

- that is my family and my home

- that has a love for the untouchables of our era
