Thought For The Week 3, September
One of the things that never ceases to amaze me is the love and care that so many people put into our church. Whether we’re like Mary, sitting at the feet of Jesus, or like Martha, hard at work in the kitchen, our efforts contribute so much to the life of the church, and to God’s mission of love for the world.
So, as spring begins to spring around us, I want to say a big thank you to all the people who devote themselves in love to helping hope spring forth in our church and in our community.
I thank you for the work you do, I encourage you to spend some time at the feet of Jesus, to be refreshed in body, heart, mind and soul. Because you are valued and you are loved.
In last week’s reading the apostle Paul urged us to offer our bodies as a living sacrifice, holy and pleasing to God. I am encouraged, day to day, because I see this happening all around me. Together, truly, we are the body of Christ. This is worship, proper and true.
