Letter of Hope

Last Sunday at the end of the sermon I gave everyone a stamped envelope and a couple sheets of paper.  We had just looked at how the apostle Paul wrote a letter to the church in Thessalonica to encourage them with a message about our hope in Jesus Christ.  So I challenged everyone to write a letter to someone to encourage them by sharing their hope in Jesus.

In the middle of the week, someone in the church who is really in a tough situation herself told me that she had just mailed off her letter and was eager to see its effect.  How satisfying it is as a pastor to see someone respond to a message like that!

I pray God rewards her for it and brings good things out of her effort.
