One Body

"so we, being many, are one body in Christ, and individually members of one another...that there should be no schism in the body, but that the members should have the same care for one another." (Romans 12:5; 1 Corinthians 12:25 NKJV) A year ago this week, Tennessee experienced a devastating "200 year" flood. Gary Burr, a songwriter and former Tennessean, wrote a song called Flood Song. It says, in part, "when one of us falls we all fall, when one of us needs we all need, when one of us stands we all stand." This is how God intended for us to be toward, and with, one another. We lift each other up in the hard times, rejoice together in the good times, and when necessary we stand together. We are meant to be one and not fragment. This is a part of loving, as Christ loved us. There seems to be so many natural catastrophes and other turbulence in the world, that now more than ever we need to reach out to one another helping, loving and caring for one another. This is the will of God, for the people of God. Thanks be to God! Love, Beau
