All About Generosity
This Sunday we’ll be exploring the unique gifts consistently offered by this church; gifts like generosity, community involvement, care for one another, and love of God. I continue to realize that for much of my previous and even pastoral career I saw myself as one who was to help determine what was lacking in organizations, communities, and even churches. Then I came here, to Aldersgate.
In as much as my focus continued I’ve learned some hard lessons. This church, this Body of Christ is unlike any I’ve served before, and potentially unlike any church I’ve ever known. How? The hearts represented in this church are all about generosity. So this Sunday I want to spend some time on naming some of the other gifts I’ve seen and experienced while serving here.
You’ve taught me. On so many levels you’ve taught me what it means to be the Body of Christ. For that I will be forever grateful and this Sunday is an opportunity to be specific about some of those lessons. To prepare please read I Corinthians 12: 12 – 27.
