The environment that allows for a community of authenticity is one saturated in the grace of Christ. How can we be part of creating a community of grace? In Colossians 3 we have the source - our gaze on Christ, and our union with Christ, and we also have the description of Christlike grace that will make the church community harmonious. Love, patience, forgiveness, the peace of Christ and the word of Christ. A grace-filled community is a safe place to be authentic.
