Can you be gracious and accepting of believers who belong to a church other than yours? What about those who used to belong to your church and have departed? Do you find this to be more difficult? Yet leaving your church does not mean they have left my Body. If you see a departure from your church as treason or betrayal then you have not learned to hold your denominational affiliation with a loose grip. If you have then you know that such attachments may not be permanent. Everyone has their own path to walk and seasons in their life. View this process graciously from the perspective of the whole Body of Christ.
