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

“Most people have come to prefer
certain of life’s experiences
and deny and reject others,
unaware of the value of the hidden things
that may come wrapped in plain
and even ugly paper.
In avoiding all pain
and seeking comfort at all costs,
we may be left without intimacy or compassion;
in rejecting change and risk
we often cheat ourselves of the quest;
in denying our suffering
we may never know
our strength or our greatness.”
- Rachel Naomi Remen

“The world is so full of care and sorrow
that it is a gracious debt we owe to one another
to discover the bright crystals of delight
hidden in somber circumstances and irksome tasks”
- Helen Keller
