Work of the Spirit
From Thomas Oden's Life in the Spirit:
The Holy Spirit after the incarnation was not creating a conglomerate of isolated regenerated persons but rather a community, a family of the regenerated, an ordered household, an organic body. Ekklesia is called to be a bonded, caring community, a koinonia, a new social creation of grace, the resurrection of the people of God raised up in the light of God's own coming, a peculiar people (56).

I like that... "family of the regenerated."

Have to put that on the Christmas card this year.
