And they continued steadfastly in…fellowship…And all that believed were together. Acts 2:42, 44
Research indicates that loneliness is as big a killer as smoking, obesity and alcohol. It is dreadful to feel isolated and cut off from people. This can happen in a crowd, as well as in an isolation cell. Wonderfully, for the Christian, there are communities of caring people who form local Churches. To be part of such a loving group is a great blessing and we should not neglect attending. The richness of fellowship dispels the despair of loneliness. —Paul Young
As we are gathered, Jesus is here;
One with each other, Jesus is here.
Joined by the Spirit, washed in the blood,
Part of the body, the Church of God. —John Daniels
