Yesterday, we didn’t just “have church” — we “did church”. We worshiped so hard, I ache today.
Instead of getting together to sing songs and listen to a preacher, our whole church worked for hours on a makeover of a local public school that badly needed work. New landscaping, new paint, new furniture, and more.
Kay & I are so used to leading in churches, that when we aren’t leading, we don’t quite feel like we’re fitting in yet. But maybe we’re not here to lead at all! Maybe our job right now is to learn. For all my talk of PEZ, here is a church that was founded with Service as one of its three core values.
I wish I could have seen the reaction this morning of the students and staff. I know that the two rooms I helped with were utterly transformed. I am amazed at the creative energy that went into the planning, preparation and execution.
Blessed are those who ache.
