On Sunday, October 10th, 2010, while Sojourn was celebrating Dedication Sunday with over 35 babies, Covenant Community Church in Pearland, TX, which was recently planed by former Sojourner Daniel Davis had a big day celebrating new birth as well. Here are some great pics and Daniel's thoughts on the day:
On Sunday, October 10th, 2010, Covenant Community Church had a big day celebrating new birth. We celebrated the births of two new gospel-centered churches launching that day in Houston. We rejoiced as two individuals followed Christ in baptism, celebrating new life granted by the Holy Spirit. Finally, we stood together and committed ourselves to the humbling and joyful responsibility as parents and members of this church body to raise nine children in the truths of the Gospel. Our church is pretty small, decidedly inexperienced, and full of young families. But standing together reminded us that we are not alone in this journey, nor were we ever meant to be. My wife, Joy, and I dedicated Simon Coe Davis, our third child at Covenant. Our older two, Reid and Annelise were both born in Louisville and dedicated at Sojourn. Those moments meant so much to us and have given us a charge to go back to as we face each new challenge in raising our children. We are thankful for Sojourn and the constant encouragement they are to us as we plant this church. Praise God for new life. May he grant them all of our children life eternal.
