Community & Vulnerability Podcast Episodes
Part 1 of 2
Community has become a popular ideal. A reaction, no doubt, to the ill-effect of our increasingly independent lives. Clubs, groups, associations, and fellowships offer much needed connection and identification for people feeling more and more alone. How is the Christian community unique in providing the connection we fundamentally need? In this episode of Breaking Bread, Arlan Miller and Isaac Funk elevate the community of Jesus.
The Christian Community is…
- God’s ordained way of extending His love to His own people and with the world.
- The communion of the Holy Spirit living among its participants.
- A place where people are known and loved.

Jesus teaches us…
- How to be vulnerable.
- How to receive the vulnerable.
- How beauty can be made from the fruit of vulnerability.
