I love the Local Church. In eternity we will forever be joined together–this present joy is simply the appetizer to heaven!
I suppose that from my earliest days I remember being involved with the local church. The actual earliest memory that I have of “church things” is sitting near the back of a building on a pew (organ side) and eating a snack of fruit loops or some kind of cereal from a plastic baggie. That is, as honestly as I can say it, my earliest memory of the church. And that was actually in the church I currently serve, Calvary Bible Church.
