The Joy of Community (#write31days – Day 23)

I love Sundays for many reasons.

I love how it starts a new week, it’s a fresh start.
I love the early morning drive to church where it seems like I am the only one on the highway.
I love how the sunshines brightly, revealing the majesty of God’s creation.
I love joining a community of believers, the church, for worship and conversation about Jesus.

Today was a good day to be part of that community. We shared conversation, laughed, learned and gathered to share Holy Communion.

We came from separate directions, with varied feelings about what kind of week we had. Some of us had a lot on our minds, others light on our feet.

But we came with a common purpose: To worship our God and learn about Him through His Word. We came to receive forgiveness of sins and be commissioned to go back out into the world and share the love Jesus. It’s a unique community that demonstrates what joy looks like no matter the circumstance. It’s a joy that comes from knowing Jesus.
