God's PeopleGod's People. I love my new church. It is a place that loves God, loves God's Word and loves God's People. I have never been in an environment that so exemplifies this before. It is ethnically diverse, loving to strangers and isn't run by corporate flow charts, those who contribute more or rock-star pastors. The Spirit of God runs it and you can tell the moment you enter. Truth is spoken from the pulpit, in small groups and throughout the various ministries—even if that truth is challenging and not what you want to hear.
Blessed are those who trust in the Lord and have made the Lord their
hope and confidence. They are like trees planted along a riverbank,
with roots that reach deep into the water.
In a world where so many churches fall short, I am so thankful that I have found a place where this verse from the book of Jeremiah is lived out. It has made all the difference.
