Have you ever seen a one man band? The person may be gifted to play several instruments but they would never make as great a sound as several gifted musicians playing together. Also a one man band would be limited to what the one man could do. It's true that you can do things that I can't do and I can do things that you can't do but the greater truth is together we can do far more wonderful things than neither one of us could do along. God is really big on us being a loving working together family. Ecclesiastes 4:12 "Though one may be overpowered by another, two can withstand him. And a threefold cord is not quickly broken."
The second picture is a large orchestra, which picture do you think looks more like the true church? I believe as we come together in love and unity we shall make a sound that calls Heaven to come and join with us. Each new person helps us to grow in the grace and the knowledge of the Lord. In 2018 we can expect greater things because Jesus said if two of you on earth shall agree as touching anything it shall be done for them. My confidence in you is high as we march together into the future we shall declare, to God be the glory for the great things He has done.
Tomorrow @6 is our annual Christmas banquet. We are looking forward to hosting our largest crowd even and we have opened another area to place more tables so everyone will have a place.

They will also be singing Christmas music at the Mayflower Mall @7pm on the 14th and 16 on this month.
Sunday morning I will be sharing, 'Having The Right Hope.' There are many places for people to put their hope but wherever you invest your life you expect to receive your hope.
