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

showered on us

“Many worthy people, and many good books,
with no doubt the best intentions, ...
have represented a life of sin
as a life of pleasure;
they have pictured virtue as self-sacrifice,
austerity as religion.
Even in everyday life
we meet with worthy people
who seem to think
that whatever is pleasant must be wrong,
that the true spirit of religion
is crabbed, sour, and gloomy;
that the bright, sunny, radiant nature
which surrounds us is an evil
and not a blessing, --
a temptation devised by the Spirit of Evil
and not one of the greatest delights
showered on us in such profusion
by the Author of all Good.”
- Sir John Lubbock
