Stanley

As I read the apostle Paul you are a church planter! Never think your a failure. 

You took the gospel of Jesus Christ to the people of the neighborhood,culture and economic status that was indigenous to the block the church met.

Your service didn’t look like the service in Jerusalem, or the parent. Church that sent you.. the service serviced the people that walked by, literally, our windows and came in. Hallelujah.

The Lord surrounded you with people who where open to learn about and live within the “neighborhood of the church building”.

You tutored us, we met and engaged conversation and prayer for and about that neighborhood.

You touched hearts in the town square, in the prison, and on the side walks. Biking your way from block to block, eagerly showing the gospel works in relationships and through freindships.

That’s what you reenforced to us your core. Freindships like the Book of Ruth show us. Cross culturally, from differing people groups and culture, the gospel eroades biased, mean  historical narratives and economic difference. And replaces with a kinsman Redeemer.

Thank-you for teaching us, preaching to us, befriending us, challenging us and leading us.

Thank-you Clifford Stanley Morton
