Can you clarify the use of the term “the Lord’s recovery”?
[#8 Q8] We say that we don’t have a name, but we refer to ourselves as “the Lord’s recovery.” I know this is not our name, but the way we use it often gives that impression. For example, when someone stops meeting with us, we say they “left the recovery.” Isn’t the Lord’s recovery an inward matter, or something that goes beyond the way we meet on the ground of oneness? Could someone address this matter and clarify if this is a common mistake on our use of the term “the Lord’s recovery,” or if I need to see this from a different perspective?
It is important to point out that these brothers do not presume to have the answers to our questions. Rather, they are willing to provide a response in fellowship, and to encourage us to personally go to the Lord and consider all these things before Him.
