A New Perspective

Last Wednesday night, after the survey discussion with the worship team, a member shared a recent event that had opened her eyes to the need of reaching the community in the south county.  After the storm, a month ago or so, her electricity was out and the church was closed on a Sunday morning.  She and her husband decided to drive up toward Annapolis to find a restaurant and have breakfast.  It was the first time in as long as she could remember that she had missed church on a Sunday morning. 

She was shocked to see how many people were out on that Sunday morning shopping and running errands.  Her whole life she has been at church during that time.  Now she got to see how many people are regularly doing something else with their Sunday morning instead of attending church.  She told me that she had known there was a decline in churches attendance, but had never seen just how many people were not in church.  It has prompted her to pray more for those that do not know Christ.
