When did a person’s safety and welfare begin to come with a price tag?
I am very blessed to be a part of such a staff.
I am finally going to get back to my church in Janesville on Tuesday! I can’t wait to get back up to Janesville, I’ve had such a great time getting involved with this church and I really enjoy the youth! I’m mostly looking forward to beating Ryan on Guitar Hero next week.
Most importantly, it is not just worship practices which are different. With African roots and a history of slavery African Americans have had a community centered-ness that many Anglo-Americans can not begin to understand and the church has been at the center of that need for community. I hope that everyone reading this blog will join with me in experiencing the community of support and ministry of an African American congregation during the next month, if you do not already worship in one.
It seems that in this time and in this place I am called to be in ministry. I don’t yet know what that will look like or how I will accomplish it, but I leave that to God’s capable hands. How is it that God is calling you into ministry? What is God asking of you in this time and in your place?
We did some videotaping of the ski trip from this past weekend. I’ve already put up the first video of one of the Sr. High youth impersonating me. I hope you enjoy.
