Sunday morning's worship service was one of the most powerful manifestations of God's presence overflowing and connecting the congregation that I have witnessed for quite some time. The Body became one in Him, tears and tongues tying us together, the music merely a catalyst, lyrics through which the heart surrendered itself unto the Spirit of He who abides within. Were we so overtly an "organism" and not an "institution" when the sermon came forth afterwards? Probably not; but we were focused. Ears heard and minds received as the Holy Ghost spoke through the pastor on the Church being not so much an "ecclesia", a people separated and set apart from the world, but a "kuriakon", a tabernacle of the Lord, a vessel through which He, Himself, moves in an attempt to rescue "the rest of the family". Such effort is accomplished "not by power, not by might", not through some arrogant declaration we make of possessing truth. Truth, rather, is a Reality that speaks for itself, a resurrection confirmed, a salvation beyond denominational credos. So I believe. So I have found it to be. "Life" is more than sucking air through your lungs......
