Connections – Platypi

Connections are… connections. Okay, I’m sure you figured out that much. Connections are connections between two (or more) things, normally connected only by a word, or two.

Platypus #1

One of my very close friends has recently taken to drawing platypi in her notebook. 😉 Just thought I’d say that… and, yes, they are adorable.

Platypus #2

I believe I have mentione our Bible Trivia Challenge Calender, but, as of yet, I don’t think I’ve mentioned our Funny Church Signs Calender. Or our You Might Be A Redneck If… Calender. But we’ll save that last one’s true introduction for another time. A quote from our Funny Church Signs Calender reads:

On the sixth day, God created the platypus. And God said, “Let’s see the evolutionists try to figure this one out.”


A quote shared by our church’s interim pastor during today’s service:

Do not try. Do or do not. There is no try.


I would like to add this quote, too:

Nothing is impossible with God.

-Luke 10:37

With God, you won’t need to try. With Him, you can do. And you can do anything.

The Church

“Who’s the church?”

“WE ARE!!”

Ah, the memories. So, anyway, one of our former youth leaders believed that those five words are very important, or to rephrase them into four words: “We are the church.”

The church isn’t a building; it’s the people. It’s us. It’s not the place where the believers come together: it’s the believers themselves.

Our church has recently been going through a lot of changes. We’ve certainly downsized, and we sold our old building. We’re currently in our temporary location, and our new building is being finished off. It’s been a rough journey, and it’s been a true reminder that the church isn’t the building, that it’s the people.

Challenge: Remember that the church isn’t the building, it’s the people who are in the building.
