Thought for the Day: I have been thinking a lot about humble service recently. Today, we will once again gather for in-person worship (LiveStream will also be available), and though the sanctuary is not finished, it will be good to be in there for a second Sunday. I’m guessing some folks might look around and notice the dust, the taped off area under the stairwells that remains quite dirty or the rough and uncarpeted aisles. What I want to talk about is all the hard work on Saturday by a handful of people to make sure the sanctuary was useable… maybe not perfect, but very useable. This group of people did not ask for anyone to take their picture and post it. They just got to work and made it happen. Wisdom is not necessarily academic brilliance. It is more awareness that comes from experience. For those involved in getting the sanctuary ready, their experience told them what needed to happen and they got to it… making it happen without seeking accolades. Today, I give thanks for all those who left the sanctuary a bit sweaty and dusty from doing some good work. God knows their names!
Prayer: Holy and Gracious God, you call us all to serve with a spirit of humility. Provide us the wisdom so as to recognize where we can best serve you. Amen.
