Dear LPC Folks,

The past few weeks have been very encouraging for me. As I pray and reflect over how various individuals in the Church are taking initiatives to care for one another, and to share burdens together, I am seeing glimpses of the New Testament Church coming together at LPC. The Spirit is moving. From the Board to the Men's Fellowship, from the Sunday duties to the willingness in individuals to go the extra mile to visit the sick or the down, I am encouraged that the spirit of love and brotherhood/sisterhood is well and alive. Some of us are tired. Others are feeling down for whatever reasons. Yet, together, there is hope. Just today, as Autumn approaches, it is common to feel the cold if one remains indoors. Each time I step out to the sun, I feel the ray of warmth from the sunshine. That is a remarkable lesson I learned.


Proverbs 11:25 reads, "A generous man will prosper; he who refreshes others will himself be refreshed."

 

Every time we remain inside of our own comfort zones or cocoons, we tend to feel cold and impersonal. The moment we step outside to feel the sunlight, we get the warmth, and we are able to start sharing the warmth and love of Christ more effectively. Take time regularly to soak in the Son of God, through the Word, that we may be able to share the goodness of God with our brothers and sisters, and our neighbours.

Keep it up, my brothers and sisters. You are growing well.


Your brother in Christ,

 

Conrade
