With this being the Resurrection season, I have been very busy getting much done for the congregations at the church where i work. I don't like to use that as an excuse for not writing a thank you to Kathy Slamp for the wonderful seminar held recently in Portland, but truly, it is my reason, along with bad new regarding my own health. [What to they know! :)]
But I walked away from that seminar with a notebook filled with ideas, other new thought, and a desire to serve the three congregations (English, Spanish, and Samoan) better.
Recently, the little blue torn-up-put-back-together person I took from our group came to mind in a different way. Several women have left my place of worship, one of whom I had not realized I had put on such a pedistal. Each woman who left tore and took with her a piece of my heart, so I thought of how torn up I was.
It didn't take long, however, for me to realize that something unknown to me hurt each of those women. I also began to pray that wherever they went, they would glorify G-d and be ultra-productive there, in the grace of our Savior.
As they say, G-d is good all the time!
