2 Saint Margaret Anglican Church: Back to Church Sunday

Back to Church Sunday

UPDATE:  Remember that National "Back to Church" Sunday is on Sunday, September 15th, 2013 and St. Margaret Anglican Church is pleased to be able to participate in this worthwhile event.  Please join us on Sunday, September 15, 2013 at 9:30 AM as we will join together, as we do every Sunday morning, as God's family to worship Our Heavenly Father and to give Him the adoration and worship that we owe Him.

In honour of National "Back to Church" Sunday, please feel free to read these following thoughts regarding exactly what "church" is and what it means:

The Church

What is church?

Is it a building...

with some pews...

a piano...

and stained glass?

Or is it something more?

2,000 years ago, the church was born.

It wasn't made up of the famous, the rich or the powerful. It was made up of every-day people who passionately believed in the message of Jesus.

It was the beginning of a revolution of love and freedom that would change the world forever.

In 369 A.D. the church built the first hospital as a place to care for those who could not care of themselves. Today, the church is the largest single provider of healthcare in history.

The church was the first to stand up for the rights of children, creating the first and largest orphanage system in the world.

Nearly all of the first 100 universities in America were founded as Christian institutions. Places like Harvard, Dartmouth, Yale and Princeton.

Most of the world’s greatest art, architecture, literature, and music has been shaped by the church.

But the impact of the church isn’t just ancient history.

Today the Christian Church is stronger than ever and continues to impact every corner of the world.

Over 300,000 churches in America and almost 5 million churches around the world are loving and caring for the needs of people in their communities in a way that governments can never do.

Every day, the church brings food and fresh water to millions of people across the world.

It offers radical care for countless poor, disadvantaged and homeless in society.

It has a renewed passion to help widows and orphans and fights to free slaves in every part of the world.

It stands ready as a first responder on the scene to provide relief for victims of disaster.

The ripple of Jesus’ impact can be clearly seen and felt in the Church today.

And it’s is made up of people like me

And you.

This day you didn’t just come to a building. You came to a growing revolution 2,000 years in the making.

The world is facing as much trouble as ever.

But we are not afraid.

We were created for such a time as this.

We will continue to do what we’ve always done:

Proclaim the message of Jesus to help a world that needs him so desperately.
