Telford Work on the Second Epistle of John

“What use is this tiny little letter? Is it in the New Testament by accident? Not at all. Rather, it’s a sign – a sign pointing to the kind of community that could have authored it. It greets us as beloved cousins in an extended family: “The children of your sister, who is chosen by God, send their greetings” (2 John 13, cf. 2 John 1b). It is a call for us to be the kind of community that can say, and not say, the same things, share the same joy, and know the same truth. It calls us not only to make our churches that kind of church, but also to make our college [Westmont] that kind of college.”

Telford Work, “Less is More: The Joy of Preaching About Almost Nothing.”
