“For where two or three are gathered in my name, I am there among them.”

– Matthew 18:20

Have you ever noticed how you just feel good when you’re at church? You feel like your best version of yourself? That no matter what is going on outside, the minute you step into the building, somehow everything just seems like it’s going to be okay. And that even if things don’t turn out exactly as you have hoped and prayed, you sense you’ll make it through … that somehow everything really will be okay.

To me that is the gift of community in Christ. Outside we are attempting to carry this massive, unwieldy, boulder of life. Some days the enormity of it all is so large we can’t see our way over or under or around it. It’s all we can do to just get where we need to be – lugging that big ol’ stone around. Yet the minute we walk through the doors of church, it’s as if God’s children come to our aid and gather together to share the load. It is no longer our burden alone to carry, but something we do together. Some days we need our load lightened, and some days we’re able to lighten another’s load.

We gather in God’s house on joy and laughter-filled days, and on sorrow and question-filled days. We can depend on one another. I see it day in and day out, year in and year out. Making church your home, making it your family, is what God intends for us: being in fellowship with one another on the bright sunny days, so that when the winds pick up and the clouds roll in, we’ll know just exactly where we need head for shelter. – Pastor Hammersten
