People Like Me

 My church is composed of people like me.

I help make it what it is.

It will be friendly, if I am.

Its pews will be filled, if I help fill them.

It will do great work, if I work.

It will make generous gifts to worth causes,

If I am a generous giver.

It will bring other people into its worship,

If I invite and bring them.

It will be a church of loyalty and love,

Of fearlessness and faith and a church

With a noble spirit if I am a filled with these same things.

Therefore, with the help of God,

I will dedicate myself to the task of being

All the things that I want my church to be.


  1. That is so true, Pastor! Sorry I haven't been around very much. Busy with my dad a lot and when not doing that I have my own stuff to deal with and when not doing that feeling the need to just relax. Hope you have a wonderful day! (((hugs)))

  2. truer words are seldom spoken.they should teach this at the seminary

  3. That is so true Pastor Larry. Its back to class on Monday. I cannot wait! I hope your family is doing fine. I miss everyone being together in one spot. I am still not sure if I am going to go back to JS. I am leaning to not going back. Take care Pastor Larry. I miss seeing you around.
