the church

I just have to say it.  I really love my church.  When I think about how fun it would be to move to the mountains, the one thing that holds me back (besides leaving family) is the feeling that we'd never find another church we love more than ours.
I love how my pastor opened this past week's message..."If you're new here, it's only a matter of time before someone hurts you.  If you're new here, it's only a matter of time before you hurt someone."  ...or at least something like that.  Truth is, we're all human.  We all make mistakes and hurt each other.  The most important thing is that we live a life of forgiveness and mercy.   When I consider the mercy and forgiveness that Christ has shown me, how can I not forgive others?
We've been going to Crosspointe for 9 years now, which is almost as long as they've been meeting.  I love this group of believers for so many reasons. It's just home to us.
Here are a few highlights from our gathering last weekend.  It was a great night of gumbo, music, and baptism.

If you are local and don't have a church family, consider this a personal invitation!
I'd love to see you there ;)
