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

related to life

“Jesus, like all other religious leaders,
taught men to pray, that is,
He taught them to look away from the world
of ordinary sense impressions
and to open the heart and spirit to God;
yet He is always insistent that religion
must be related to life.
It is only by contact with God
that a better quality of living can be achieved -
and Jesus Himself, as the records show,
spent many hours in communion with God -
yet that new quality of life
has to be both demonstrated and tested
in the ordinary rough-and-tumble of plain living.
It is in ordinary human relationships
that the validity
of a man's communion with God is to be proved.”
- J. B. Philips
