Fresh from a hearty dousing at Niagara Falls, we rolled into downtown Rochester for the weekend. On Sunday we walked to a nearby church — and came away even more refreshed than from the Falls.
Their service featured a greeting, two songs, teaching from Romans, and two more songs. That was it. Gather our attention, focus on God, explain His Word, focus on God, send us off encouraged.
We sat in the middle, surrounded by several hundred Millennials. If I lived in Rochester, would I come back? Absolutely.
How many places on earth can you show up in an unfamiliar city, walk to a pleasant venue, get blessed for an hour — for free — and walk away better off than you came? We have much to be thankful for.
