Thought For The Week 3 February 2019
What a wonderful time we had last Sunday evening celebrating the opening of the refurbished foyer at St. Stephens, and the installation of the restored stained glass windows from St. Pauls.
It is a credit to all involved that this project has worked out better than we could have imagined.
This week we have the unexpected pleasure of worshiping together again as the maintenance at Trinity continues.
We have made significant progress in the last year or so, on improving our buildings. There is still plenty of work to do, and this sort of work tends to absorb a lot of our energy. It feels good, because the results that we achieve are concrete and measurable, and we are being good stewards of what God has entrusted to us.
I believe that we are at a stage where more of our energy can be poured into the less measurable moments of our lives – those ideas and dreams where God is calling us to be salt and light in the world. This can be hard – we don’t always know quite what to do, or how to do it – but we are not in this on our own. In the end we are God’s church and he will lead us in his ways, serving our community with faith, hope and love.
