• Do you feel the weight of heavy things resting on your shoulders? Maybe it’s something personal, maybe it’s just in the atmosphere, or maybe you’re carrying a burden for a friend. 

     

    We’re living in times where every ten days or so there is another senseless act of violence perpetrated on the innocent and vulnerable. It’s right to feel that and to lament that.  It’s wrong to hear it rehearsed on the news multiple times a day. It’s right to pray for the world’s cohesion and compassion, unity and justice, but it’s wrong to make the brokenness a greater felt reality than our hope. It’s wrong to live in lamentation always.


  • I remember these words, often spoken in the inimitable voice of Dr. Boice.  I encourage you to read it until it becomes personally sweet. This statement marries gospel doctrine to gospel culture. May we all chase after Jesus in such a way that it becomes more and more true of us.


    To all who are weary and need rest

    To all who mourn and long for comfort

    To all who feel worthless and wonder if God cares

    To all who fail and desire strength

    To all who sin and need a Savior

    This church opens wide her doors with a welcome from Jesus Christ,

    The Ally of His enemies, the Defender of the guilty, the Justifier of the inexcusable,

    The Friend of Sinners, Welcome!
