One of the things that is spiritually (and mentally) healthy for us is to count our blessings. This morning in Isaiah 63:7 I read these words: "I will tell of the Lord's unfailing love. I will praise the Lord for all he has done."
It is good to often crack open your book of remembrances and recall the times you've experienced his blessings. These come packaged in wrapping both mundane and spectacular, in the everyday boxes and the once-in-a-blue-moon boxes.
This day in Christian History:
January 21, 1525: Conrad Grebel (Ulrich Zwingli's former protege) rebaptizes George Blaurock, a former monk, in a secret, illegal meeting of six men in Zurich. This meeting is now considered the birth of the Anabaptist movement.
Our congregation is part of a very large family of Anabaptist churches around the world. Most are in the southern hemisphere. Tomorrow marks World Fellowship Sunday, where we celebrate our common faith heritage in the Mennonite World Conference family. We will be showing a short video about MWC. Each Sunday we gather to worship is a foretaste of Revelation 5:11-14.
