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?
