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

Sea of Galilee...

The Sea of Galilee and the Dead Sea
are made of the same water.
It flows down, clean and cool,
from the heights of Herman
and the roots of the cedars of Lebanon.
The Sea of Galilee makes beauty of it,
the Sea of Galilee has an outlet.
It gets to give.
It gathers in its riches that it may
pour them out again to fertilize the Jordan plain.
But the Dead Sea with the same water makes horror.
For the Dead Sea has no outlet.
It gets to keep.”

- Harry Emerson Fosdick
