How Do You Spell Relief?

“Therefore, as we have opportunity, let us do good to all people, especially to those who belong to the family of believers.” (Galatians 6:10)

Two teenagers told me that today’s sermon was the shortest I’ve ever preached. That was by design. We met in the gym (FAC for the initiated) this morning because we have had no A/C for most of the week. Our plan was to have a quick but meaningful worship service. We planned to go 45 minutes with an option to shorted it to 30 if the heat became unbearable. Instead, when we arrived this morning the A/C power had been restored. It was still warm because we didn’t have sufficient time to cool the building.

How good it was to be together again! How wonderful it was to be able to recount the many good deeds this church has done in the past week. I didn’t mention any names (except one brief reference to David Layman) because I knew I would not be able to remember everyone who pitched in and helped.

If you were not there the sermon will hopefully be posted to our web page on Monday. Incidentally, if you didn’t hear the sermon, God spells relief C-H-U-R-C-H.
