In Exodus 3, Moses has an intimate encounter with God. Mysteriously, miraculously, God appears to him as flames in a burning bush – a sure-fire way to get Moses’ attention! As Moses approaches the fiery shrub with curiosity, God says to him, “Do not come any closer. Take off your sandals, for the place where you are standing is holy ground.”

Holy ground.

Was it the actual ground on which Moses stood that was holy? No. It was the presence of the living God that made it so.

God is in our midst, WMB. Through the ministry of this body of Christ, God shows up on a daily basis, making a difference in people’s lives – here in Kitchener-Waterloo and far beyond. As you read our 2018-19 annual report – a collection of stories telling of His presence and work in many lives – may you find yourself on holy ground, compelled to “take off your sandals” and worship our amazing, living, holy God.
