Hope. Healing. Restoration. (I would use another “H” word but I’m not a baptist pastor so forgive me for messing up the alliteration…)
But it’s what we do. Sing songs about connecting with God. Songs of hope and healing. Restoration and Redemption. We sing songs that lead people to Jesus. For his hope. His healing power. This is why we worship.
We got a chance to see some of that this week. I know it wasn’t all the music or worship. It wasn’t all the sermon, although it was good. What we got a sliver of a chance to see, was Jesus working. And that makes it worth while for me. It makes moving to a city I never heard about, to work with a small start-up church with no building worth it. Jesus is why we do what we do.
