Extend the Family

I suspect some families were being a little dysfunctional watching or hearing football on Sunday evening, when a sermon was being given to a number (including me). It was about extending the family, getting away from that nuclear family model that even schools realise does not apply to so many - but they go on using it!

Here is an excerpt:

And once we start to enlarge the borders of the kingdom of the Saved to include all our brothers and sisters and not just ourselves and those we get on with most easily, who knows where that extended family and its shelter and nurture and love might end?

A better positive spin on and model for something that often goes wrong for too many. It adds to my own collection and linkages of Anglican examples of worship and resources.
