September 2013

The beginning of September can be a challenging time in church life. For some of us there can be a sense of excitement as we think about what God may do this year and as we plan and hope and pray. For others of us our hearts sink a bit, Summer is over and the year ahead stretches out, busy and challenging. And God invites us to follow Him into September, and the sense that God is stirring us up applies to September as well as June; and the truth of God’s encouragement not to be afraid stands.
