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

confidence and simplicity...

confidence and simplicity

"'It always grieves me,' I observed,
… 'to contemplate the initation of children
into the ways of life,
when they are scarcely more than infants.
It checks their confidence and simplicity -
two of the best qualities that Heaven gives them -
and demands that they share our sorrows
before they are capable of entering into our enjoyments.'"

- Charles Dickens
(The Old Curiosity Shop)
