Why do the people keep coming even though the church building looks more like a construction zone.
Is it because the children can freely play? Is it because there are no expectations for “proper” behavior, freeing people to relax and be friendly?
Are they excited to see progress and to be part of providing a place where people can find hope and peace? We don’t know, and we intend to keep pushing on to finishing but we rejoice that people are coming.
Work on a church building takes time, resources and effort to complete. The same can be said for the spiritual work of building a church. Hirosaki Nozomi Church buildings are a work in progress, but we can be reminded by them that the church on earth is a work in progress looking forward to completion by the Master Builder on his return.
