He Brings Us Together

I’m traveling with the Boy Scouts this morning. It’s also Sunday. Our worship service is scheduled for tonight. I have worshipped with my church with little interruption for more than a decade, and I miss them every one. I miss my church this morning. In that mild sense of melancholy I was reading and came across this statement of Dietrich Bonhoeffer, “…we are both only where [Christ] is. He brings us together.” Today I will lead these boys to the scriptures, we will pray, and I will strive too turn their to Christ. And we will worship. There in that divine mystery of God’s presence we will “join the everlasting song” and will be, together with all the church we shall be only where He is. For He, in His inestimable name, and for His incomparable glory, brings us together.

One of the tasks holding me back in my full restoration and continued involvement with the website has been the burden of extracting the text of all my old posts out of the former – very broken – database.  database extraction is not a strong suit of mine.

I had a few offers of some incredibly generous individuals who said they would happily do it for me, but I finally decided I don’t want to mess with it any more.

Old sermons might get reposted, old series restored. But I’m no longer trolling my archives for the ancient. It’s time to move on.

If you remember a post that you wish you had access to try to describe it in the comment section or pound out an email.  Otherwise it’s time to press on.
