I had a conversation this week with a guy who doesn’t go to church, and finds the whole idea ridiculous.  In some ways I agreed with him- it is rather ridiculous to gather together to hear flawed preaching from an ancient book, to sing songs of a music style we might not like, to drink sour juice from tiny cups, all seems, well, silly…….

Until……… we recognize they are mysteriously intermingled with the life-altering, heavenly presence of the same Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead.  Then what is silly or foolish becomes the means to a greater grace, a work of the extraordinary life through the ordinary means of words, songs and juice.

May the Spirit that raised Jesus from the dead animate your heart, mind and soul today.

Christ is all,

Pastor Shawn
