“Partnering Radically”

Philemon is like reading someone else’s post. This means it is: -

Coffee questions:

We don’t have slavery anymore, but what other things still divide our society?

How can we be a radical, counter-cultural fellowship? Is there anything more practically that we can be doing beyond what we do already?

What difference would it make to our church if we behaved like Philemon suggests we should? What difference would it make to wider society?
