Hope on the heart

I enjoyed getting a chance to spend some significant time at Andover today to begin the week. The sanctuary is quiet and the feeling is quite different from just a day earlier. I do enjoy the solitude and the awe that comes over me as I look upon the chancel area and am reminded once again for the reason we exist. However much I may enjoy the solitude, I love the vibrancy of Sunday morning when the body is again assembled to worship God and encourage one another. I stood in the back this past week and greeted many folks as they entered. And to a person, they entered with smiles on their face and a warm greeting on their lips. We talk a lot about hope at Andover. And I have seen it on your hearts and am strengthened to continue the work God has called us to do. Thank you.
