It’s a privilege for us to gather together each day for our beatdowns, especially in light of the fact that other brothers are unable to do so due to illness, etc. So, let’s not take for granted any day that we’re blessed with the opportunity to gather together in the Gloom.

The shared struggle we endure in our beatdowns increases our fellowship and builds an inner strength that we will need to draw from when trials and adversity come our way.

“You have tested us, O God; you have purified us like silver.”– Psalm 66:10 (New Living Translation)
