just another branch
Matt left Lily and I as he ventured out...WAY out...for church this morning. With our new truck full of passengers, he drove about an hour out into the mountains, and then hiked another 30 minutes past that to attend this small mountain church. I love going to these rural churches, and was quite disappointed to miss out on the adventure ("Just one small sacrifice of many to come for the baby," my dad said.)
Matt preached alongside of Pastor Job from Exodus 3 about God's individual call on our lives and our calling as the Body of Christ, the church, to be outwardly focused...our call to be Jesus's hands and feet to those who are suffering, lost, hopeless, helpless and hurting.
Afterwards, he was given a "tour" of the church and schoolroom (pictured below). Imagine how crowded this must look when there are children in it!!!
Wherever you were for church this morning, now you know of just another branch of Christ's body, worshiping the same God this morning alongside of you!
