As Ecclesiastes says, there is a time for everything under the sun. This week seems to have some of everything in it. Whether everything is going well in your life or not, together with the church is where you should be this and every Sunday. God calls us together for a reason. And part of that reason is for us to give and receive encouragement so that we have the strength to continue to be faithful and disciplined in our daily lives. When you aren’t here, you are missed, whether you know it or not. And when you’re not here, we miss out on the unique gifts you add to the life of the body here. So please make it a point to be with us as often as you possibly can.
