I thank You for Redeemer Church of Somerville MA. I thank You for their commitment to blogging and the metaphor of the cockpit I just read from their January 13th post. I ask that You bless their writings, that the articles will touch lives.
Father, on their website they write:
You’ll experience a welcoming community, stirring music, and teaching from the Bible that connects to real life and points to Jesus.
The phrase that struck me is that they want their ministry to connect people to “real life”. Real life includes the stories of struggles and how You rescue us from those struggles. Testimonies. I pray that You will create new testimonies at Redeemer. May the people in the congregation share their stories with one another and with the residents of Somerville.
