Last week our mayors walked out of the governor’s office unconvinced by his promise of “no undue harm,” whatever that’s supposed to mean. Maybe you should lay down, governor, you don’t look well.
‘Business’ of churchis to reflect love
Recently, I was at a local church that was hosting a blood drive. I heard one of the donors make a comment that the church “was nothing but a business.”
I agree, the church is in the business of paying its bills so that blood drives can be held there free of charge to the American Red Cross. It is in the business of giving away food and clothing to more than 120 families every month. It is also in the business of offering marriage retreats with the hope of building strong marriages in our community and bringing down the high divorce rate we currently have.
Another business the church is in is to have a memory garden and cemetery for couples who lose an infant to miscarriage or stillbirth. These couples with nurseries ready suddenly find themselves in need of a burial plot.
I could go on and on, covering many more aspects of the “business,” but I won’t. Much of this business is done by volunteers whose only reward is knowing they are acting as the hands and feet of Jesus and hoping their lives will reflect the love of Christ to Kokomo and the surrounding area. I for one am very happy to be a part of this business.
My prayer is every person in this community will visit one of these “businesses” and make it a part of their lives every week.
