“You are the light of the world. A town built on a hill cannot be hidden. Neither do people light a lamp and put it under a bowl. Instead they put it on its stand, and it gives light to everyone in the house. In the same way, let your light shine before others, that they may see your good deeds and glorify your Father in heaven.” [Matthew 5:14-16]
God has His people standing as a beacon of hope and agents of love and kindness at this time. It’s time for the Church to shine even brighter. In our church, we’ve caught this phrase: “Church isn’t closed; the way we meet has changed”. The Church has always been His people. Whilst we may not be able to gather in buildings, we can gather in unity; and with wisdom and faith.
With that in mind, we have some timely resource to encourage you and bless you.
