Three years ago, my family hitched our wagon to God's leading & headed to a new chapter of life (ignored the mixed metaphor). Today, our church gets to follow suite.
Property rich & cash poor, our church is needing to sale its building. No small step. Thankfully, the place is not who we are. Though financially deficient to maintain a large, wonderful building, we are otherwise strong, healthy & maturing - the real crux of the matter. (FYI - "crux" comes from the word cross or crucifixion - any church's true central matter.
So the Shepherd is leading the sheep to find its identity increasingly & solely in HIM. Not a bad place - figuratively now more than ever - in which to be. I am proud of the good leaders & people I am honored to serve. A real people of grace!
