I wrote earlier that our bible study had challenged its own members and the congregation to FILL the harvest altar, as a mission miracle. This is the harvest altar on the Sunday we collected food.
The whole project served to remind me of a few things:
- That people are willing to give. They are generous. They want to give. They (and I) just need to be asked, and need to understand the good that will come of their giving. Otherwise, we forget.
- That miracles can be ordinary actions of ordinary people, moved by God (hence the miracle) to change the world. We should never forget that.
- That this is church. This is what we are to be about.
