Losing a Church: The Goodbyes

There was coffee, and cake, and a table filled with yummy things made by loving hands.  There were songs, and a gift, and a slideshow presentation of memories.  There was eating, and talking, and running, and sitting, and standing, and listening.  There was hugging.  And there was praying and blessing.

There was laughter, and there was tears.

And so we said our goodbyes.  We made our promises to keep connected.  The end has finally come, and we are left standing at the precipice of the future, trusting that God knows the plans He has for us and is working all things for our good.

"Therefore go and make disciples of all nations, baptizing them in the name of the Father and of the Son and of the Holy Spirit, and teaching them to obey everything I have commanded you.  And surely I am with you always, to the very end of the age." Matt 28:19-20

Praying that you'll find another body that you can become part of very soon, and that God comforts you as you mourn the loss of this one. <3
