Growing together in the Spirit of Jesus Christ...

"Let us not give up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but let us encourage one another - and all the more as you see the Day approaching." - Hebrews 10:25 NIV

small beginnings

“The considerable actions in the world
have usually very small beginnings.
As of a few letters
how many thousand words are made!
Of ten figures, how many thousand numbers!
And a point is the beginning of all geometry.
A little stone flung into a pond
makes a little circle, then a greater,
till it enlargeth itself to both the sides.
So from small beginnings,
God doth cause an efflux through the whole world.
He useth small means in his ordinary works.
The common works of nature
spring from small beginnings.
Great plants are formed from small seeds.”
- Charnock
