Perhaps you've heard the adage, "The family that prays together stays together." I love that proverb, because it is true and also it emphasizes the need for the family to be united around God and His glory. With that idea in mind, may I offer you another contemporary proverb?
"The church that reads together, thinks together, dreams together."
We recently held a Church Members' Assembly where we talked and prayed about the future and direction of our church, and our sister, Alaina Jones, proposed the idea that we begin a book ministry or a book cart where we could swap and exchange books and start reading things together as a church.
As we pondered this idea together as a congregation, it seemed good to us and the Spirit that we begin this undertaking. Reading good sound theological books and Christian publications expands the teaching ministry of our church, assists in the shepherding ministry of our Pastors, deepens the fellowship and friendship of our congregation, and forms unity around the truth of the Gospel. Plus, it's just fun to read! And so our church was happy to hear this proposal.
As we talked about it as a family, it seemed good to appoint Alaina Jones to this task. But we as a church must help her. She needs good books to start stocking the cart. So, consider this a call for good books to be donated to this ministry. If you have any good, solid Christian books lying around that you have read and are now done with, please consider giving them to Alaina Jones to assist with her book ministry to our church congregation.
Here are a couple of quick points to consider as you think about giving your books to her:
Thanks so much, Bridge Baptist Church! Please help Alaina as she strives to minister to you! I would appreciate it, and I'm sure there are many others who would benefit from this undertaking. Thanks!
