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

love and care

“Jesus, you know what it is to be human
and that it is not easy to love our neighbor as ourselves.
When we do not understand our neighbors,
nor they us, help us to think more
about how we could understand them
and less about how they could understand us.
May we never let fear keep us
from speaking or acting in love,
nor thoughtlessness spoil the impulse of the heart.
May we do all that we do in gratitude to you,
rather than in desire for praise,
and when our time, energy or talent are at an end,
may we quietly ask your help
and remember that you love and care for them
much more than we do.”
- Avery Brooke
