This is Good

         The atmosphere at church feels good. Perhaps King David described it best; “Behold, how good and pleasant it is when brothers dwell in unity!” (Psalm 133:1).

         I hope you have written out your 50 good things about this church, and are now making the opportunities to share one of those good things with someone each week.  I had the opportunity to share a few this past week, and it felt great.

         We have so many reasons to feel blessed. I have friends in ministry in Spain, and they have only within the past few weeks been able to start meeting in person. We are blessed each week that we have been able to meet in person.

         We are blessed with a warmth that encourages each other, and makes a new person feel more like a true guest than just a visitor.

         We are blessed with a church family that desires to spend time in the Word of God, learning and growing. Our midweek and evening studies are so well attended.

         We are blessed with an atmosphere of true worship as we celebrate Jesus and His being in the midst of us as we gather. It makes every gathering that much more special.

         We are blessed with a long history in a community that needs to hear and see the gospel of Christ.

         We have so much to be grateful for.  Thank you, and as Paul says, may we all keep up the good work. “Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing” (1 Thessalonians 5:11).
