Over these last few weeks God has been speaking significantly through many people. This was built upon in today’s Sunday service and so we would encourage as many as possible to apply what God has been saying.
This has been a painful season of pruning as a church. This has nothing to do with numbers but to do with character: God is pruning us individually and corporately to produce His fruit in us. Pruning for a plant is quite brutal, and if not done in stages can kill it. In the same way God is pruning us, just a few branches at a time, for our good, to produce fruit, and not to harm us.
