Church Visit

April 1, 2007

I’ve had a great day.  How’s yours been?

You see I haven’t been to church for a while.  I’ll leave the variety of reasons for another time.

But today I went to church.  Stewart was doing pulpit supply in a wee church that is without a minister so I thought I’d go along and join him.  It’s Palm Sunday after all and the week leading up to Good Friday and Easter Sunday has always been special to me.  I wasn’t disappointed.

It isn’t the kind of church that leaves you breathless because of its outward beauty and stature, quite the opposite in fact but you know what?  These people who in some people’s eyes appear ordinary turned out to be quite extraordinary.  We were welcomed with an openness that was quite overwhelming and I felt humbled by their generosity and hospitality.  

I was glad that I had taken heed when God tugged at my heart this morning or maybe it was when I asked Stewart if it was okay for me to wear my jeans and he said that Jesus would just be glad I was going because it had been so long! 

The preacher was pretty good today too!
