So, how are your New Year’s Resolutions working out?
A group of friends and I decided to start Rick Warren’s “The Daniel Plan” in January. Rick talks about the Holy Spirit dwelling in our bodies and how we should treat our body. One friend decided she was not quite ready to join us and that she was going to continue to show the Holy Spirit a good time! All kidding aside, I am thankful to have my small group joining me to be healthier in 2014. Grateful for the gift of community. “If either of them falls down, one can help the other up. But pity anyone who falls and has no one to help them up.” Ecclesiastes 4:10
One resolution that many people make is to attend church more regularly. I think that instead of making the resolution to attend church we should all decide to “quit going to church.” Pretty drastic words for someone who has attended church her whole life. Instead of going to church I think it is more important to start being the church.
I am thankful the churches that are part of New and Revitalized Congregational Development are living into that resolution. Backpack ministries, food and clothing pantries, food programs, tutoring, the list goes on. These congregations are blessing others all across our Conference. The gift of community. Would you like to join us?
Feb. 23, 2014 is designated as Kingdom Builder’s Sunday. Please sign up to partner with NRCD as we seek to share the love of Christ across the South Georgia Conference.
“May the grace of the Lord Jesus Christ, and the love of God, and the fellowship of the Holy Spirit be with you all.” (2 Corinthians 13:14 NIV)
