More Like a Hospital

Honor, Protect and Love one another

“The church is not a select circle of the immaculate, but a home where the outcast may come in. It is not a palace with gate attendants and challenging sentinels along the entrance-ways holding off at arm’s-length the stranger, but rather a hospital where the broken-hearted may be healed, and where all the weary and troubled may find rest and take counsel together.”

James H. Aughey

“I will strengthen the weary and renew those who are weak.”

Jeremiah 31:25

 

 

I don’t know who the artist is who created this artwork that opens this. It resonates within my heart, and I love the ‘feel’ it brings. Notice the figures, they all have soiled garments, even the one doing the ministry.

  1. Yes! Absolutely! My church has been described that way by the weary and broken. We are blessed to be a blessing. We pour out what we have been given….only to be filled again.
