Our church family has been showing new signs of life lately. One of our faithful longtime members has been suffering some 'persecution'. He complains about nightly visits from demons who come to disrupt his sleep and that of his family. Our church has taken to praying for him and meeting with him often. It's encouraging to see real signs of 'brotherhood'.
Our services have been well-attended, and attended by folks who readily participate in the worship and prayer. There's a new feeling. I can't put my finger on it, and I have certainly seen this before in my time here. I can never explain or predict it. But good things are happening right now.
Our church (if I heard the number correctly) has collected over $700 to help a lady build a one or two-room house. That's a lot of money for folks here to collect in addition to regular giving. It's another sign of LIFE.
Christ is ALIVE in His Church. I heard a message from a pastor in the US detailing how some of his fellow pastors have given up on the resurrection as probably not true. They're still preaching, but they're no longer believing. "GET OUT OF THE CHURCH!" the pastor shouted. I myself wonder why non-believers feel called to be teaching in the Church of Christ.
