Therefore encourage one another and build up each other, as indeed you are doing. (1 Thessalonians 5.11 NRSV)One pastor says he is afraid to walk into his office on Monday mornings. He knows he will find an anonymous note. No signature, just an anonymous criticism of his church or of himself. Sometimes the content is serious. Most of the time the notes are concerned with petty complaints. One Saturday before Easter, there was a letter in the mail. It was an unsigned note that said, "Sunrise on Easter morning is at 6:05 a.m. not 6:30." The pastor wondered if the author of the letter understood that the purpose of a sunrise service is not to identify the actual moment of sunrise so much as to celebrate the resurrection of Jesus. Rev. Henry Ward Beecher one Sunday morning found an anonymous note with just one word written on it FOOL. That morning he held up the note to his congregation and said, "I have known many an instance of a man writing a letter and forgetting to sign his name, but this is the only instance I have ever known of a man signing his name and forgetting to write the letter." Our call is to build one another up in the Christian faith. Dear God, assist me and build me up in your understanding, so that I can build up others in their faith. Amen.
