“Koinonia” is an ancient Greek word that means community.
It means communion, not the bread and juice kind, but the friendship kind. It means fellowship. It means that we do life together, that we love each other, that we rejoice together and sometimes weep together. It means we have fun together. It means we spend time together. It’s important. It’s community. It’s koinonia.
On April 28-30, the Calvary Chapel family throughout eastern Canada is going to gather in Ottawa for a time of, well, koinonia. It’s not a conference where we only listen to great Bible teaching (which we will), it is a time of getting together and having fun as brothers and sisters in the Lord.
I hope you will make plans to be there.
That which was from the beginning, which we have heard, which we have seen with our eyes, which we have looked at and our hands have touched—this we proclaim concerning the Word of life. The life appeared; we have seen it and testify to it, and we proclaim to you the eternal life, which was with the Father and has appeared to us. We proclaim to you what we have seen and heard, so that you also may have fellowship with us. And our fellowship is with the Father and with his Son, Jesus Christ. (1 John 1:1-3)
