The Church that IS the church

Thats where you'll find me...Our church has made some important decisions:

People are more important than issues.

Being loving is more important than being right.

Jesus Christ is the head of the church, and no one else.

These sound simple, but it’s not easy. They worked hard. The hardest work, at times, was being quiet and letting go of control. They were steady without being strident. They were faithful without being feisty. There were mistakes made, to be sure, and forgiveness sought. Someone has said that it’s not over, and so it never really is. There is much to celebrate today and be thankful for. For me, gratitude to God is for a church that knows what it means to be the church — and to act like it.
