Brotherhood News for October 2022
Your Brotherhood for October, 2022
Greetings and wishes of continued healing blessings to all BASIC, Brother And Sisters In Christ who are suffering in body, mind or soul.
The Brotherhood meetings are still very lightly attended. The past meeting attendance number was 4. In the interest of perpetuating new ideas and in promotion of the decree, "Go forth, making disciples...." We cannot do that without congregating in every shape and form we've enjoyed in the past. I recently read and have heard that church populations are on the decline. Recently, it has mainly occurred due to symptoms of pandemic. Despite the continual barrage of bad news, we are slowly getting past the fear. Fear does still cause tension and tension most time results in pain.
Enough of the pain already! It's time for some good news! Let's create some, shall we?
The Brotherhood does not exist without Brothers who are involved. It is the same with our sisters in Christ. And brothers and sisters who congregate in common bond, create the good news for themselves and others. Never in human history have people needed people more than now.
In talking with a few fellow brothers and sisters, it became evident to me, that we need more of the fellowship we had in the past, something like a talent-dinner show or perhaps card-games? A dance for the young and old? How many of us are chomping 'at the bit' for more interactivity/fun things we can do as a congregation?
Bring these ideas forward to the meetings, in phone conversations, on Facebook and elsewhere. We can do this. We can do this together. The concept of going forth creating disciples of all nations, has to start in our own back yard. As aspiring Christians, we all share an equal stake and responsibility. Volunteerism works only when you incite your own quiet riot inside yourself.
The next Brotherhood meeting is at 6:00 p.m., October 17, 2022 at the church. Everyone is invited. God's love and blessings to all from your Brotherhood.Brian
