Today I am thankful for the Leadership team at Garnett Church of Christ (where we are now.)
Last weekend we spent Friday night & Saturday night with them on a Leadership Retreat. We focused on the 4 “f”s. Food, Fun, Fellowship & Future. We really had a great time laughing with them, dining with them, and discussing with them where this church has been recently, and where it is going.
One of the things I kept thinking is that it is just such a blessing. A blessing to have been so warmly welcomed within just a few weeks, really. A blessing to have them already trying to figure out how we can stay longer than our 10-month internship. A blessing to laugh with them & to see them interact with each other. A blessing to hear them talk about some of the hard times they’ve gone through as a congregation. And a blessing to hear the excitement as they heal from those hard times & look to the future.
