Springtime is here again, and the Concord church is rejoicing! Indeed we can rejoice because this time of the year reminds us that God is not dead, but alive forevermore. The whole earth springs forth in silent praises to Him who created all things for the benefit of those He created in His divine image. All that appeared to be dead or lost for a while are now alive again in rich hues of color. Each drop of rain, bird, tree, flower, and sweet fragrance, serves as a testimony of the goodness of God and His great love for us. I can’t help but think that, just like different varieties of plants and trees, new, old and young, all have the chance to grow and flourish together to beautify and fragrance the earth. So, it is in Concord church! Whether you are old, young, or new in the faith, you are welcome to come experience God’s love and grow with us in His beautiful Garden of Faith. Together with all of our gifts, talents, and love for each other, we can make this part of our world a better place.
For, lo, the winter is past, the rain is over and gone; The flowers appear on the earth; the time of the singing of birds is come, and the voice of the turtle (dove) is heard in our land; The fig tree putteth forth her green figs, and the vines with the tender grape give a good smell. Arise, my love, my fair one, and come away.
Songs of Solomon 2:11-13 KJV
