l guess for the love to flow, the members maybe have to take the initiative and go be salt and light wherever they live and work. I think some do already
Squareone, I can assure you that members have done this kind of thing many times over the years and got no support or encouragement for doing so. Leaders were often not even willing to pray for such exploits at the prayer-meetings because these weren't Struthers events set up by the church but were an individual's idea or vision. Such individuals usually leave SMC eventually, so that they can get on with what God has told them to do without being hemmed in and hampered by controlling leadership. So SMC loses these people who have a heart to love others.
Squareone, forgive me if I'm wrong, but you always seem to be sticking up for SMC and I can't quite understand the way you are thinking. It is important to see the good in everyone and in every group, I agree, but maybe you weren't in SMC long enough to know all the stuff that has happened there over the years.
