on “sunday nights” (i think that’s the working title for our sunday evening get togethers, you got any other suggestions??) we’ve been going chapter by chapter through the book of acts, but personally i’ve been reading through the book of romans. (i’ll let you guess where we’ll be studying next). romans is a powerful book filled with a systematic explaination of God’s grace and his standard for holiness.
i was reminded again of what the heart of almost every missionary is to preach the gospel to “those who have not heard.” faithful readers will know that last week our church staff went on a retreat. during the trip we looked over some census figures for our city. those numbers showed that approx. 36% of our city declared NO religious affiliation of any sort. so in a zip code with about 12,000+ people that’s nearly 4,500 that need a church. if you’ve never been to grandview, wa let me tell you that’s way more people than biggest church in our city.
