We had some excitement yesterday morning when we gathered for Bible study. We’ve been having some work done on the building, and several people noticed a strong smell of gas. We evacuated everyone to our Ministry Activity Center. We had a pot luck planned, so there were already enough tables and chairs set up.
While recognizing that it was difficult for some of our older members to make the trek from one building to another, and it was probably anxiety-producing for parents as they worked to locate their children, the resulting time of fellowship was wonderful. Hands down the best Bible class time we’ve had in a while, in my opinion.
Yes, we need Bible study. But we also need time to sit and talk with fellow Christians. Our well-planned services don’t always provide that.
I also think a little disruption is good in the life of a church. Especially when it turns out to be a harmless gas leak that was quickly controlled.
How was your Sunday?
