This evening I walked into a church
The former congregation has left. The Episcopal Church is too diverse and messy for their taste. Of their future they affirm "Nothing will change about this Church, Christ's and ours, except it will be totally obedient to Jesus Christ and His eternal Word in witness before a watching world."
May they indeed be faithful witnesses to Christ.
Tomorrow I will be preparing to open the doors on Sunday and welcome "whosoever will." If even one other person shows up we will celebrate Eucharist.
I ask your prayers.
For all who have ever worshiped in that place.
For those who have walked away.
For those yet to enter those doors.
May we all find and be found by the One who is the lover of our souls.
