“We Really Do Need Each Other”

by Reuben Welch 

You know something—

we’re all just people who need each other. 


We’re all learning

            and we’ve all got a long journey ahead of us.

                        We’ve got to go together

                                    and if it takes us until Jesus comes

                        we better stay together

                        we better help each other.

            And I dare say

                        that by the time we get there

                                    all the sandwiches will be gone

                        and all the chocolate will be gone

                        and all the water will be gone

                        and all the backpacks will be empty.

            But no mater how long it takes us

                        we’ve got to go together.

                        Because that’s how it is

                        in the body of Christ.

            It’s all of us

                        in love

                                    in care

                                                in support

                                                            in mutuality—

                                                                        we really do need each other.


Between the lines






                                                I am personally responsible.

                                                            So are you.

Very true. Being with you guys over vacation has had me thinking about this very thing. What a privilege... and responsibility we have in being part of the body of Jesus!
