Yes, it indeed very good that we are here. But by here, that is not to say 74 N. Fort Lane Blvd. in Layton, Utah. There is not anything special about these coordinates of the map, this section of the plat book, or even the interior of this building with our pews, organ, lectern, altar, font, banners, paraments, and even crosses and crucifixes. These could all just as easily be used for ill as for good.
What makes it good that we are here, is that here God has chosen to gather us to speak to us—not with a disembodied voice booming from a cloud of overshadowing light, but with the voice of one of the countless ministers of the Word He has sent into the world and will continue to send until Jesus comes again in all His glory to judge the living and he dead.
