Beautiful days, great times, and good people are what make life awesome! All research points to faith, family and friends as the things that bring the most meaning and joy in life. What makes these things possible? You have to go upstream to find out.
If you want to know where faith, family, friendships, strong economies, healthy institutions, values, ethics and strong character comes from you have to go upstream to know.
It comes from healthy, vibrant, strong churches. Strong and healthy churches are the only truly upstream community that exists to influence every aspect of our down stream living.
If the church is lost, then our society will be lost. If our society is lost, then we will loose the freedom to discover the most meaningful things in life.
The church is the living body of Jesus. Pray for the health of your church. Work towards the growth of your church. Give to your church so it can be strong in the midst of a society that is loosing its way. The local church is the hope of the world.
