Laity Sunday

How do you know?

How do you know when God has been at work?

  • When an 11 year old can stand in front of a group of adults, and practice her sermon for the next day, with no fear or worry. When her message is so obviously of God that it leaves no doubt of his presence.
  • When someone who is new to our church can preview a talk that for tomorrow which so perfectly states a lesson that our church so desperately needs to hear that it is obvious who has been leading her in her work.
  • When a man can preach a message which so completely reflects his personality and yet also so wonderfully reflects the image of God.
  • When people who don't normally lead worship can step up, say yes, share their gifts with all of us, and do it in a way which demonstrates their dedication to their God.
  • When friends share their support, their help, their prayers and their presence so willingly that God's presence is made real.
Laity Sunday. God is in this place. God is in these people. I can't wait to see what happens when the dance begins.
