His House | Celebrating Fifty Years

Scott Crary


This picture sums up so much of what I love about His House! It was taken moments before Joanne was baptized into Christ at West Kalamazoo Christian Church. A short time before that, Joanne and I were chatting at the His House Winter Retreat where she felt disconnected and out of place with God.

Praise God for His loving grace and the opportunity and space to walk through that moment with her! Through prayer and the encouragement of our WMU community, Joanne found her life in Christ and wanted to obediently be united with Him in baptism! Praise God!

Joanne framed this picture, along with the passage from Matthew, and gave it to me. Now as it hangs in my office, it serves as a reminder of the Great Commission and the love of Christ, which flows through relationships, to make an eternal difference.
