Antiquity sets sail into the confusion and rests its anchor firm. It is so different and yet so the same. It is not just four, but a body.

Even though adversity burdens the door with threats of impasse, the light prevails in a parade of victory; clarity brings a moment of tranquil bliss.

There are no short term missions. There is only one body and there is only one mission. Amen.

I have thought it necessary to send to you Epaphroditus my brother and fellow worker and fellow soldier, and your messenger and minister to my need … So receive him in the Lord with all joy, and honor such men, for he nearly died for the work of Christ, risking his life to complete what was lacking in your service to me. Philippians 2:25; 29-30
