But for all the anxiety and stress, it felt worth it as I processed out with the choir on Rally Day, belting “Come Labor On” with the rest of the congregation! This annual call to service reminds us that being the church is not about perfection, or being seen, or feeling important. Our duty is to rally together to SERVE our community and be IN community with each other.
As we all settle into the new program year, remember it’s not about you, or us, but rather God’s work being carried out by our humble bodies. By the Spirit’s tether we have been drawn into this special place, so be the Holy Spirit in and around this community, spreading a fire of love and justice!
