    ►Connect with God.
    ►Connect with other believers.


    Never underestimate the power of prayer

    No problem you might have
    is too big for God to handle.

     B ecause God is with you all the time,
    no place is any closer to God
    than the place where you are right now.

    The peace of Christ be with you—
    —and also with you.
    Passing the peace is a deeply theological practice of reconciliation not replicated in secular culture. We greet each other in Christ, laying aside our differences — at least for the hour.
