Love in action

This past weekend, I saw the body of Christ respond in a godly and helpful way to another member of our church in crisis. When Bill Eckles lost his precious wife, Dorothy, so many of you stepped forward with cards, calls, visits, cleaning the church and getting things ready for the funeral service. Many of you brought food to the church the day of the service, and of course our deacons came out in force and served the family and all their guests after the memorial service. I felt proud, grateful, encouraged, hopeful and convinced that the church's greatest gospel message comes through loud and clear when we do what Jesus said: By this all people will know that you are my disciples, if you have love for one another. John 13:35
Continue praying for Bill during this time of transition.
