New Lutheran Quote of the Day

Church fellowship is a gift from God.  It is determined with reference to his gifts of the "holy things."  In God's provision of gifts he entrusts them to a good stewardship by his church and ministers.  It is in that stewardship that we respond gratefully to the giver God and to our neighbor.  We pray with the whole Church its Eastertide prayer.  O God, you make the minds of the faithful to be one will; therefore grant to your people that they may love what you command and desire what you promise. -- Dr. Ronald Feuerhahn, Church Fellowship in Teach Me Thy Way, O Lord, p. 70.
