Jesus called the crowd with his disciples, and said to them, If any want to become my followers, let them deny themselves and take up their cross and follow me. For those who want to save their life will lose it, and those who lose their life for my sake, and for the sake of the gospel, will save it. – Mark 8:34-35
This morning a crowd of families anxiously gathered outside of a place they had long awaited. A massive metal door slid upward. Light poured in. And they came. And smiled. And were hopeful. And were blessed.
Today I had the opportunity to photograph our church’s new building dedication. It is a monumental step in the life of a church plant – a space to call your own. To call home. To serve as a base for outreach in your community. Although we haven’t been here since the beginning, this is our Florida family. Today was a day to celebrate and remember and praise. And I was grateful. Ever so grateful for that.
If you’re in the area, Trinity New Life Church is a welcoming, diverse group of folks (friendly too). We’d love for you to stop in.
