Exhortation: The Danger of Complacency

Next week we will be celebrating the largest addition of new members to our church. We are also pleased to have two baptisms. We are looking forward to a joyous day to welcoming new brothers and sisters to our community.

God has increased our numbers and continues to pour out his blessings on our congregation. In times of growth, however, we can become complacent; we can sit back and let other people do the job of hospitality and mercy. But this is not an option for you. You are bound to this congregation by sacred vows. With new members your responsibilities increase. Passivity is not an option. God has called this congregation to be a light in this city. We are a new and restored community through Jesus Christ. Whether in good or bad times, let us fight the good fight for our labors in the Lord are not in vain.

Prayer: O God, we thank you for the history of this church. As we approach ten years of existence we cannot but see your right hand guiding this body. We thank you that even in the weakness of the leaders you have given this congregation, yet you have seen fit to establish a mature and ever maturing community. Strengthen us, guide us, be our ever present help at all times, for this is our prayer, O Lord. Amen.

    Hello Web Admin, I noticed that your On-Page SEO is is missing a few factors, for one you do not use all three H tags in your post, also I notice that you are not using bold or italics properly in your SEO optimization. On-Page SEO means more now than ever since the new Google update: Panda. No longer are backlinks and simply pinging or sending out a RSS feed the key to getting Google PageRank or Alexa Rankings, You now NEED On-Page SEO. So what is good On-Page SEO?First your keyword must appear in the title.Then it must appear in the URL.You have to optimize your keyword and make sure that it has a nice keyword density of 3-5% in your article with relevant LSI (Latent Semantic Indexing). Then you should spread all H1,H2,H3 tags in your article.Your Keyword should appear in your first paragraph and in the last sentence of the page. You should have relevant usage of Bold and italics of your keyword.There should be one internal link to a page on your blog and you should have one image with an alt tag that has your keyword….wait there’s even more Now what if i told you there was a simple WordPress plugin that does all the On-Page SEO, and automatically for you?
