Apostles' New Blog Name: The Ebenezer

I am happy today to announce the name for our new blog. We are calling it ‘The Ebenezer.’ No, not after Charles Dickens’ Scrooge...but after the biblical passage 1 Samuel 7:12
Then Samuel took a stone and set it up between Mizpah and Shen. He named it Ebenezer, saying, “Thus far the Lord has helped us.”
This stone of remembrance was erected to remind the Israelites of God’s deliverance when the Philistines were ruthlessly attacking their nation. 
We chose this name because every time the Lord acts in our midst to bring lost people to faith, build up Christians in His character, or transform lives and situations for His kingdom, we want to celebrate and remember. So we hope this blog will serve to collect all the little ebenezers, taking place in and through the lives of our members, into one big ebenezer to proclaim the wonders of our God.
“God bless us every one” - Tiny Tim, from Dickens’ A Christmas Carol
In His name,


Patrick
