From retired Pastor Paul Elbert…
Jesus expects his church to carry him into the world and our everyday lives with everyday people, especially where things seems troubled.
He calls and commissions each of us to participate in his great adventure of introducing others to him. Bringing them into his church to experience reconciliation with God, love of neighbor, and hospitality to stranger—for us to be for the world what he is for the world.
That’s what Jesus is all about. Thanks be to God!
