AROMA NEUTRAL/SCENT FREE: This is one of the comments from one of our members regarding fragrances and scents, “Pastor, when I smell certain things, my nasal and bronchial passages constrict and I have to leave. If it gets bad, I have to use an emergency inhaler or maybe even go to the emergency room.” Thank you for being considerate of the needs of others and working towards a more aroma neutral/scent free worship environment.
LUKE 20:38 – “Now he is not God of the dead, but of the living, for all live to him.” We are people of the Resurrection. We know our future. And this knowledge colors all our actions in this world. Since we know we are destined to live in God’s kingdom forever, what kind of lives ought we to live? Where should our priorities be?
