Today I am embarking on a new adventure...into the cyber world as a blogger. I know this isn't a new thing but, since we have the capabilities on our website and I know how to write, I am venturing into a great world of words and thoughts. It is important that a church gathers together, but sometimes we can't wait until Sunday to experience God, think about eternal matters or raise questions about our faith. For that very reason, this is a platform that we can use as a church body to praise God and lift each other up in our faith.
Don't be afraid to comment on a blog entry because this is a platform for you to be a voice in our faith community and a face to the outside world that might find us. We are a faith community that is misunderstood by some locally because we believe in God and stand for the Truth. If we can voice that Truth here, then there is hope for us to do the same when we are asked to defend it in whatever circumstance in life. The worst mistake we can make in our faith community in the eyes of the world around us is to misrepresent the Truth because we remain silent and let others fill in the blanks. We are not perfect people and we have trouble not making mistakes in terms of the Truth, but don't let the world be mistaken about what we believe and our continuing attempts to center our lives on the Truth. And that Truth is the Gospel message of Jesus Christ--He lived, ministered, was tortured, crucified, raised from the dead, and lives at the right hand of the throne of God the Father.
So, my first attempt to reach out to you via the internet can be a success if you know it is here--I'll try to get the word out. But if you find this and you don't know anything about CCoA, then I am here to fill you in. Just know that God loves you and wants a relationship with you.
