And let us consider one another to provoke unto love and to good works: Not forsaking the assembling of ourselves together, as the manner of some is; but exhorting one another: and so much the more, as ye see the day approaching. Hebrews 10:24-25
We're now well into 2015. Each week we see the Lord's blessings; each morning His mercies new. Over this side of the world we have had the luxury of assembling together, of exhorting each other and of showing the love of Christ openly in our community. The meetings and activities at Langstaff this past week were done openly and without fear of persecution. Yet across the globe, the week saw the harsh persecution of Christianity that we have been forewarned of. As we pray and consider our brethren in the Lord, may this week glorify His name even more, and may we truly understand the privilege of gathering together as we see the day approaching.
The past week at Langstaff we enjoyed meeting together for various activities. We continued our Q and A session in 2 Timothy, the Gym Night on Friday saw many unsaved out, and we enjoyed ministry this Lord's Day by John Young.
FOR YOUR INFORMATION:
CLOTHING: This past week has been a cold and chilly reminder of the realities of Canadian winter. For most of us this has meant more hot chocolate and warm clothing. Unfortunately, there are many in our society who don't have a warm fireplace and warm clothes to protect themselves from the elements. Bryan Joyce is looking to take gently used clothing down to the homeless of our city. Please bring any clothes to the hall to be gathered up and subsequently donated.
