Dana and I had not worshipped with our church family in over two weeks. I agree with that "parking lot" song, recently made famous by the counting crows, which says "don't it always seem to go that you don't know what you got till it's gone..." not that Faith Covenant closed its doors, but we had been closed off to it for a few weeks, and realized while we were that the little church we attend and serve is incredibly significant to the both of us.
The church is a funny looking family at times, but it is a family bound up by the Creator of the universe, holding the keys to the most important message that humanity has ever known.
I pray that Dana and I, as well as our little church in Winnipeg would become restless. I pray that we would open the doors to our hearts to our neighbours, our families, our friends... and perhaps, by the grace of God, and by the work of the Holy Spirit, this most important message would be let out in ways we may never have been able to comprehend.
