Five reasons why I choose to remain connected to the Brethren Movement
Why do I choose to stay connected with the Brethren movement? In short, because I continue to share their original dream. Those five noble goals still inspire me, warm my heart and provide direction to the way I live today:
- To keep the Lord Jesus at the center of everything
- To love God’s Word and study it with an open heart and open mind
- To long to be guided and empowered by God’s Holy Spirit
- To actively encourage the Priesthood of every believer
- To positively contribute towards building up of the Body of Christ worldwide
The truth is these beautiful features are shared by far more Christians today than two centuries ago when the Brethren movement begun – and I rejoice whenever and wherever I see them valued and practiced! But it also must be said that these five noble goals are essential to the Brethren dream – they so inspired a generation of brothers and sisters that their striving to live them enthused many others around the world.
