I Quit Going to Church

Dear Church,

 It’s been an emotional roller-coaster ride for sure, but I can’t even begin to express our overwhelming gratefulness for the many ways you have “been the church” to us over the past couple of months. Your encouraging words, your many prayers, your visits at the hospital, the messages on social media, the meals, your questions of concern – all of your expressions of care – have lightened our load and encouraged our hearts.

 

 Thank you! Thank you! Thank you!!!!!

 

 We’re so deeply thankful for each of you! Thanks for “being the church!”

 

 

Joel (and Linda)
