What is the life of the church? What makes it different from all other societies and organizations? The answer is Christ, He is the difference and our source of life.

“‘Out of the mouth of infants and nursing babies

you have prepared praise’?”

Come to the waters;

And you who have no money,

Come, buy and eat.

Yes, come, buy wine and milk

Without money and without price.

Why do you spend money for what is not bread,
