I would like to start by saying that I do not intend on turning this into a political debate about what is going on right now. As such, comments for this post will be disabled. This is not a reflection of Apathy, far from it. Part of my personal testimony revolves around how loving, caring, and supportive Franklin Street has been throughout my entire life.
I have never agreed so profoundly with a message from a pastor and this needs to be shared and heard. Christ’s love is for everyone regardless of race, gender, or creed. I have seen many people from all walks of life receive the Holy Spirit because of Christians who were called by the great commission. Love your brothers and sisters. Listen to their cries to be heard.
Rioters are not a reflection of peaceful protesters asking for a voice, they are not the same. Police officers who abuse the law and show excessive force and violence are not a reflection of those who stand devoting their life to our safety and justice, they are not the same. What is the same is that we were all pardoned for lives filled with sin and darkness.
Please pass the love that you were given on to someone else who needs it.
In this video Pastor Josh Knipple walks us through the Book of Philippians. Also included are songs by Robin Mark “One Day”, Chris Tomlin “Even So Come” and “All of Creation” By Mercy Me. All performed by The Franklin Street Church Band. Enjoy!
It is exciting to see a ray of sunshine after being locked inside for so long. I count my blessing as often as I can to remind myself that I am not in control and only the Father knows what will happen and he truly will shower his faithful with blessings.
I pray that each of you feels the same and are continually blessed until we see each other again.

Let us spend this time in reflection of all that we have and all that we have been given. Truly there is no greater love than that of a Father willing to sacrifice his only Son so that we could spend eternity together in Heaven.
