Pastor's Wednesday Message

Dear Christians,

     Someone once said that as Christians, "We are Christ(')s"!

     Leave the apostrophe in. We are Christ's. We belong to Christ. Christ takes care of us. Christ loves us.

     Take the apostrophe out. We are Christs. We are the body of Christ in the world. We belong to the world and to its people. We take care of people. We love people. We are acting as Christ in the world for people.

     We cannot be Christs unless we are Christ's.

     Say either one, Christ's or Christs, out loud, and they sound the same.
     
     Either way, We are Christ(')s!                      Pastor Tom
