Meeting Together

23 Let us hold unswervingly to the hope we profess, for he who promised is faithful. 24 And let us consider how we may spur one another on toward love and good deeds, 25 not giving up meeting together, as some are in the habit of doing, but encouraging one another—and all the more as you see the Day approaching.Hebrews 10:23-25

These past two weeks, as we consider being+becomingDISCIPLES, this word from Hebrews has been our guide. It is true that God is faithful and therefore we have hope. Hope in Christ will never disappoint. As we are in a season for prayer and discernment as to just how we will continue to our best effort at love and good deeds, I wanted to remind you that coming to agreement in the Holy Spirit as to our future course will require that we do not give up meeting together. I want to encourage all of us (that is, to fill us with courage) to do just that whenever possible. Over the next several weeks, we have the following opportunities to gather as the body of Christ, the whole people of water’sEDGE.

  • Sunday worship. The April and May teaching is direct from our Methodist heritage, being+becomingDISCIPLES of Jesus Christ. Being in worship with our brothers and sisters in Christ is a means of experiencing God’s grace and wisdom together.
  • Wednesday prayer @7 each week until May 16. The Holy Spirit works in, between, and through God’s people when they gather and listen.
  • Sunday Sharing. 11ish. Sunday April 22, May 6 &20. A time for water’sEDGE to talk it over. To hear what the Lord is saying to us in worship, sacraments, prayer gatherings, and in our holy conversations.
Honoring God is a community undertaking. Encouraging one another requires us being together. Agreement in the Spirit comes through comes through receiving God’s grace and wisdom as the body. Please make it a priority, in this time of decision and vision for the future, to be part of all of these opportunities to meet together. God is speaking. He will guide us through.
