Jesus is so faithful when HIS children ask – this morning I
asked HIM to make me aware of even the small things pointing
to HIS imminent arrival – man and did HE come thru today in
a big way.
I belong to a mainline church and our congregation (on the
church books) numbers between 3000 and 4500 souls.
We have a carols by candlelight feast every year around
about this week – and this year it is scheduled for Friday
evening. We all contribute a small amount to the communal
food and get together to eat, fellowship and sing carols by
candlelight to HIS glory as is the tradition in our
Well this morning I got a call from the church office saying
that the carols by candlelight has been cancelled – the
first time ever – due to lack of interest – there were
between 15-20 people who indicated that they would attend
out of a congregation of 4000.
How does the text go… in the last times love of many will
grow cold and they will go into the world forsaking the
gathering together of the faithful – so sad but HE COMES
