Hmmmm

First PPRC meeting tonight since moving in. Whoa! These folks have a lot to say because they haven't been allowed to express themselves in a very long time!

They want so badly to do ministry. They want to be the church. They want to be a Body of Christ to the Small Town community. They have a heart for evangelism and people belonging to a community of faith that accepts them! They want to be trained as leaders!

What a difference between Church-Around-the-Corner and the Church-I-Used-To-Serve!

There's a lot to do here!

Hey, that's great - you deserve this. I'm hoping for a similar turnaround with my new community. This Sunday, I shake off the dust of this experience! The thing is, although we might get a sense of good things in interviews etc, until we're there....
Love sharing your journey- thanks for blogging it.
