Carson - loving enemies in the church

Ideally, however, the church itself is not made up of natural "friends". It is made up of natural enemies. What binds us together is not common education, common race, common income levels, common politics, common nationality, common accens, common jobs, or anything else of that sort.... In this light, they are a band of natural enemies who love one another for Jesus' sake.

Applications to the whole Fresh Expressions movement, to the way that social subgroups work in church, etc...
