Growing up in a Gospel Movement, my eyes are captured by a larger story. . . It makes you wonder, what is the Spirit of God saying to the Church in our community today? Our Great God, the Divine Communicator, is still alive and well. Could He have specific things to say to the Church of a whole valley - our valley? And could His unified people hear the same message and respond together? Read my favorite story to find out for yourself!
I used to hide during introductions. I’d linger at the name-tag table, or visit the restroom, in a well-timed attempt to escape the microphone as it passed from pastor to pastor. Subtle, but hiding. Every month my side hugged the info table; but the viewpoint I found there, I'd trade for nothing. I saw a genuine, “I know you, I like you, I’m for you” friendship.
