Refreshing a Church

Saturday, July 17, 2010

It was good to see so many come out today at the church for a work day when it was so beating hot. Yard work was being done and the inside was being cleaned well. Its refreshing a church. I am so proud how through this time of change waiting to get a new pastor that I have seen so many faithful people keep things going and give of their time and talents. Its a reminder that a church isnt the building, its the people who give of themselves over and over. If we would keep that same mentality in the work force, I think people would love their jobs more and trust would be so much easier. So while we refresh our church, we also need to refresh the spirit that goes with carrying out that same mentality wherever we may be working. Give a helping hand, do the dirty work and not complain, volunteer for the not so good parts and do them with some pride. Not easy to do, but once and awhile we need to say, its ok, I too can give something more.
So as I cleaned grime out of the kitchen floor and changed the color of it, I was reminded that we are preparing to greet and hopefully find our new pastor this next year. How much nicer to come with a sense of a refreshing place to be.

What refreshing moments can we add to that now?

    Remember Here's the church with your fingers

One thing I taught kids

Here's the church
Here's the steeple
You can have a church with a steeple
You can have a church without a steeple

    How true your words are! My Dad would often tell me, if you find a perfect church don't join it, because it won't be perfect any longer! :) He wasn't telling me I wasn't perfect, just that there really isn't a perfect church as we are all imperfect humans ... sinners! That's why we need the Lord Jesus' Salvation in the first place and therefore need church to help us grow to be more like Christ!

Thanks, Born for reminding us all again!

    So very true....we were reminded today at our service that when we all start looking for a new church in two weeks that we need to go in with the attitude of what can I do for the church not what can the church do for me...I know I will find it.

  I love your blog! You are so right! Church is not a building, it is people coming together showing that they care. Another refreshing moment would be people coming together to mentor children who need it. Well, again, I loved your blog!
