Wow, it was a rough night at church. I could just feel the conflicting emotions in the air. I could look around the room and read the body-language.
Why does this have to be so painful and difficult? I certainly can see both sides of this, but I think that the path set before us is clear. If we are so stubborn about keeping everything we have for ourselves... what purpose does that serve? Is that what God really wants from His church here on earth?
I am trying hard to focus more on what God is teaching us through this and not on the problem or trial itself, but it is very challenging.
I appreciate all your prayers on behalf of our little church. We will be voting on the "merger" on August 28th. Please continue to pray for us to make the decision that will glorify God.
