Our Sunday School class is studying Choose the Life by Bill Hull--this week, chapter 9. Hull says, "I am saying ...that the church will always vacillate between glory and the grotesque...there will be periods of great glory when Christ is paramount and the world all around will be infected with the life of Christ through us...when our little communities of grace show those around us who God is and what God has. It is for these periods of glory that we live, for which we train, and for which we pray."
These are the empty pews in which MY "little community of grace" gathers this morning.
O, Christ Jesus, let YOUR glory fall on us today!
Show us who You are and what You have for us this morning!
