Therefore encourage one another and build one another up, just as you are doing. 1 Thessalonians 5:11
Some dear friends organized a gathering yesterday for many of us who benefit from Bethlehem’s Disability Ministry. I think about 90 people showed up. I enjoyed meeting some of the young men in His Works at our North Campus.
It has been a challenging few weeks in our family and I didn’t think I could make it, but God made a way. When I arrived at the picnic they were being lead in worship through song, and then Kempton Turner took us to 2 Samuel 19. Pastor John and Kempton agree that 2 Samuel 19:30 is one of the most beautiful sentences in all the Bible:
And Mephibosheth said to the king, “Oh, let him take it all, since my lord the king has come safely home.” (2 Samuel 19:30 ESV)
It isn’t easy having being one church with three campuses, mostly because we don’t get to see each other. Yesterday was sweet, and a reminder that God is good to give us friends who encourage us in our faith and seek to build us up.
