3 Authentic Reasons You Should Brave Church

3 Authentic Reasons You Should Brave Church

This weekend is Easter, and more people will attend church than any other weekend. I know some of you are  reading this a bit anxiously.  White knuckled and bracing for a ‘preachy’ tone.  It’s not here.  I am trying to persuade you to try church, but no scare tactics or guilt involved.  I know of lot of you go to church already, but many do not.  There are a lot of good reasons not to go to church and this post is not trying to make you feel guilty or preachy, but in case you were wondering about what really happens in most Christian churches this weekend, I wanted to give you 3 authentic reasons you should brave church.

Authentic Reasons you should Brave Church

Ways to be encouraged
I had a rough one last week, but I was given a surprise.  I took this picture with my wife Mary taking her to work because our car was acting up. 
Psalm 19 says “The Heavens declare the Glory of God.”
Wow!  What a beautiful sunrise!  It was as if God said, “here you go.”  My wife and I both needed that smile.
We were talking about all of our issues and problems, which I won’t list here (cue violin music), but this made them go away for a while!  It made what we were dealing with so trivial and small.
