Community of Hope February 5, 2012

Often in ministry it is hard to tell who is the one serving and the one being served.

On a brisk February afternoon 44 people gathered to share a bowl of potato soup, sincere conversation, and community worship.

As the microphone was passed through the community, people shared their joys and God sightings from the week.

In the sermon, a message of God’s love for all people and a challenge to pray was proclaimed.

In communion, all people were invited to receive the gift of God’s grace.

However the real gift (for me) came at the end of the service. One gentleman shared that we prayed for everyone, but we didn’t pray for the pastor. How humbling to realize the people you think you are serving are really serving you.
