A Fond Farewell
There is no better source for inspiration and guidance in the church than this section from Ephesians, which we have focused on over the past two months. I leave it with you to ponder and consider as you move forward. Powerful words help us look at ourselves and one another through the spirit. In times of difficulty, one must always search for, discover anew and cling to the common connection we have in faith. And always remember we are not here for ourselves, but to serve His purpose in our lives and this community.
Unity in the body of Christ
4 Therefore, as a prisoner for the Lord, I encourage you to live as people worthy of the call you received from God. 2 Conduct yourselves with all humility, gentleness, and patience. Accept each other with love, 3 and make an effort to preserve the unity of the Spirit with the peace that ties you together. 4 You are one body and one spirit, just as God also called you in one hope. 5 There is one Lord, one faith, one baptism, 6 and one God and Father of all, who is over all, through all, and in all.
IN OUR THOUGHTS AND IN OUR PRAYERS:
