I awakened this morning long before the alarm clock sounded-- 4:10 a.m. No pains, no anxiety, no worry. Just awake, thinking of you, thinking of God, ruminating on spiritual things. I covet my early morning prayer time--although it's not usually quite so early.

This month my family and I are beginning a seventh year among you. Numerous thoughts overflow my soul.

Critics must not be allowed to deter us from binding together in Christ Jesus all the saved. Nor can we compromise God's grace and the saving power of Jesus. Regardless of the outcries of others (to whom we give no place even for a moment), we shall move ahead in spiritual worship, a growing unity within this spiritual body, nurturing the spiritual development of every Christian, and ministering and communicating Good News to the lost and hurting in our world by recognizing and addressing the everyday concerns of contemporary culture.
