On Life's Journey
You Are Welcome Here
Open to the Skeptic, the Seeking, the
Disillusioned, the Follower, and everything in between.
...Live in peace with each other. 14 And we urge you,
brothers and sisters, warn those who are idle and disruptive, encourage
the disheartened, help the weak, be patient with everyone. 15 Make sure
that nobody pays back wrong for wrong, but always strive to do what is
good for each other and for everyone else. 16 Rejoice always, 17 pray
continually, 18 give thanks in all circumstances; for this is God’s will
for you in Christ Jesus. 1 Thessalonians 5:13-18
