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

a leap forward

“Dear God, here on earth
you are constantly seeking to change us.
At times we wish to flee
into the wilderness to avoid you.
But let us learn to love
the lasting things of heaven,
rather than the dying things of earth.
We must accept that time
always brings change;
and we pray that by your grace
the change within our souls
will make us worthy
of your heavenly kingdom,
where all time will cease.”
Alcuin of York

"The future lies all before us.
Shall it only be a slight advance
upon what we usually do?
Ought it not to be a bound,
a leap forward,
to altitudes of endeavor and success
undreamed of before?"
Annie Armstrong
