Whatever is lovely

Love one another with brotherly affection.

(Romans 12:10)

Our church had a bring and share’ service today — no sermon, instead members of the congregation shared how God has been at work in their lives.

One person spoke of God’s grace in helping overcome character weaknesses, a family of God’s sustaining them through a tough winter. A teen shared the preciousness of a memory verse (2 Timothy 1:5) spoken to her by her grandmother, and a steadfast woman of God told us how encouraging the book of Job is to her during trying times.

Real people fighting the good fight, testifying to God’s faithfulness in all aspects of their daily lives. Afterwards a church meeting with open discussion of some big issues for our congregation — devoid of animosity. Capped off with a lunch together as a church family (and the guys did the dishes!). God was truly in our midst today!

Up next Pure — faith I am not what I once was
