We dedicated five minutes to mingling and grabbing coffee before the sermon started today. People were smiling, chatting with one other and really having a good time. I’m glad that we made a point to make our services more relational. God wants to be in a relationship with us and offers us the opportunity to do so through Jesus. In turn, as we relate to Him, we also relate to each other as His body. No one should do life alone. We were made to be in community and our “coffee break” provided an excellent opportunity to reinforce that truth.
