    Second, we can creatively re-member the social body with which we worship and to which we belong. Some churches incorporate videos or prayer requests from members into their Sunday services.

All human relational problems — from marriage, family, and friendships to neighbors, classmates, and colleagues — all of them are rooted in various forms of idolatry, that is, wanting things other than God in wrong ways.   It is from that idolatry that our forebears fled. They not only fled, they replaced that idolatry with Godly, Biblical principles to order their lives. They wrote confessions and books to explain their understanding that the Spirit of God through the Word of God was and is the guiding principle of their lives and ours.
