On a recent foggy day, we took some visiting guests just outside the city to an ancient church located on a steep hillside. The misty air provided a haunting backdrop for the old, crumbling walls. We stood for several minutes looking at these bells and wondering about their usage. For each of us, the stark reminder was that if we are “clanging” without love, we are simply providing more useless noise in an already noisy world (1 Corinthians 13:1). As you “ring” in your local community, may you be filled with HIS LOVE that “always protects, always trusts, always hopes, always perseveres”.
