Invitation to work and to walk

Posted in better disciples at 8:40 AM by alexlozada

Good Friday – Easter weekend pulls Christian servant-leaders in at least two directions – balancing the need to work so that others may worship AND the need to walk, meaningfully and personally, to the Cross and the Empty Tomb.

For the people we shepherd, worship this weekend is one of the most uplifting joys of the year.  For the people-Jesus-misses-the-most, this might be one of the only times they are open to spiritual influence during the year.  This means event prep is so important:

BUT if this weekend is only about necessary ministry tasks, we may struggle like Martha in Luke 10, so caught up in preparations we miss the Messiah.  My teammate Rob Kastens this Ruth Haley Barton article to help our staff and elders walk, as well as work, this weekend.
