I was reading about how early African converts to Christianity were earnest and regular in their private devotions. Each one reportedly had a separate spot in the bush where he would pour out his heart to God. Over time the paths to these places became well worn. As a result, if one of these believers began to neglect his or her prayers, it was soon apparent to the others. They would kindly remind the negligent one, "Brother, the grass grows on your path."
I thought that this was a helpful reminder about the importance of our prayer life and I know that we have some wonderful praying people in our church. May we be regular in our prayers, and thankful as we see God answer!
Volunteers needed: upon re-opening, we will need the services of volunteers to help run our Sunday services. We are looking for camera controllers, Fireside room laptop monitors, PowerPoint operators, and audio(sound) operators. Excellent training will be provided. Please contact Judy Thompson or Don Hill if you can assist.
