And the fellowship of The Holy Spirit

Be with us all evermore


For today ....

A Word of Scripture

Remember it is God himself who assures us all, and you, of our standing in Christ, and has anointed us, marking us with his seal and giving us the pledge, the Spirit, that we carry in our hearts.

2 Corinthians 1:21-22

A Thought for Today

“The earth, our home, is beginning to look more and more like an immense pile of filth. In many parts of the planet, the elderly lament that once beautiful landscapes are now covered with rubbish.”
