Love and Truth Church



I had the privilege of visiting the Love and Truth Church in Jackson, Tennessee this past weekend and I wanted to share my impressions. Of course, we all know Eddie and Sherri Cupples are the pastors. And, while I'm at it, I want to thank them for allowing us the use of their facilities for the Gathering.

I attended the 8:30 am service, and, to be honest, didn't know what to expect. It was not quite what I was use to. But as Sis Darcie began to sing, I became aware of something very familiar- the awesome Presence of the Lord. Wasn't familiar with the songs... the service was... well, different, but the Lord was in the midst. As Darcie sang "Tis so Sweet to trust in Jesus" (Finally!- a song I knew!), I could really feel the Holy Spirit as people worshiped. No, no one rolled on the floor, no running the aisles, just a quiet, yet powerful flow of the Holt Spirit.

Bro. Eddie's, message "Impossible in Unacceptable" wasn't your typical "All ya gotta do is BELIEVE!" sermons. It was, in fact, one of the best messages I have heard in a long time. It was more about HOW to believe than it was about "You just gotta believe". Inspiring, edifying, uplifting, encouraging, everything, in fact, a sermon should be. He's not just a great preacher, and, as is evident, a great pastor, but Bro. Eddie is also a great teacher and leader. And I can only hope in aspire to one day be able to call him a great friend (now that he knows I'm not just one of Sherri's imaginary friends!).

Seriously, if you are ever in Jackson, a visit to Love and Truth Church should be at the top of your "To Do" list. Thank you, Love and Truth Church for the warm welcome!

Re: Love and Truth Church

You can see where they have started their building project to build a new auditorum so they can combined services from three to one! See, they are oneness!

I really enjoyed both services!!

Huh... excuse me, but...only my friends get to call me Rick.

Which means, since you called me Rick, you must be one of my friends! It was good to meet you. I meant to get some of your music but, well, they say the memory is the first thing to go. Next time, I guess. By the way..... have I told you......


I YOUR AVATAR!
