6. Our lack of humility in wider Christian circles
There are Nazarenes who earnestly want to hear from God. There are Baptists who long for Godâ€™s justice to roll down like the mighty waters. There are many who take communion or baptize with water as an earnest and real connection to the living God, without letting it be a dead ritual. I sometimes think the way we approach those outside our Friendsâ€™ circles is similar to the way the Pharisee prayed as he stood next to the tax collector in Luke 18.
