Sunday evening. We take Communion together and remember that this really is all about Jesus coming back. We proclaim the Lord's death until He comes. Reading old hymns out to each other from a hymn book. Reveling in the progression of them, all starting with a verse about how great God is, a verse on our sin and the Cross that deals with it all and then a verse about heaven. Reveling in the riches of God's crazy never ending grace.

"He giveth more grace when the burdens grow greater,
He sendeth more strength when the labors increase;
To added affliction He addeth His mercy,
To multiplied trials, His multiplied peace.

His love has no limit, His grace has no measure;
His power no boundary known unto men;
For out of His infinite riches in Jesus
He giveth and giveth and giveth again.

When we have exhausted our store of endurance,
When our strength has failed ere the day is half done,
When we reach the end of our hoarded resources,
Our Father's full giving is only begun."

And many more quoted to each other.
