I was reading John today and came across the story of Nicodemus in chapter 3. ¬†The thing that I love about that story is that the scripture points out that it was after dark one evening when Nicodemus came to ask Jesus some questions. ¬†Being one of the Jewish religious leaders who were actively seeking to discredit Jesus, he didn’t want them to know that he was struggling and needed some answers and believed in his heart that Jesus had them.
I think there are a lot of people like that in the world and in our community. ¬†I hope our church becomes a light in the city for people to turn to when they need answers. ¬†Last year our focus was getting into the city. ¬†This year, our focus is being here for the city. ¬†I am honored to serve here with you all.
