KING’S CROSS CHURCH exists to glorify God and enlarge His Kingdom by gathering regularly to proclaim and celebrate the Gospel of Jesus Christ, yielding to the authority of God’s Word as illuminated by the Holy Spirit and summarized in the historic Christian Creeds and Reformed Confessions, partaking together of Christ’s presence in the Sacraments, providing opportunities to love and serve one another in Community, equipping the saints for Ministry to those who are lost and hurting, both locally and globally, and preparing them to cultivate Shalom (peace and well-being) wherever God calls them to serve.

We raised our brood under the maxim: "On time is late; early is peace." But in the spirit of Paul on Mars Hill who observed, "as even some of your own poets have said" I would like to quote Brent Beshore, who recently wrote in Forbes magazine: "5 minutes early is on time; on time is late; late is unacceptable."
And if this is true in the business world (and it is) then how much more as we assemble before the throne of our Lord to renew covenant with Him. And how absolutely necessary if we are to experience the blessedness of hearing the Lord Himself call us to "worship [Him] in the splendor of holiness" (Psalm 96:9).
And, for the record, I have vivid memories of the demonic forces that would conspire to hide either one shoe, or one sock as we tried to get our kids out the door on Sunday morning. But if it happens every week, then perhaps there are ways to lean against Baal-Tardee. Just sayin'...
You can read Beshore's excellent article here. Enjoy.
Anne politely wiped the spit off her face with her sleeve. "Jesus loves you, and so do I," she said. "And I forgive you."
