Where is your heart with service?
“I’m not really a conference person, but I’ll think about attending,” I said to Mary Beth when she asked me about going with her to Q, a conference calling Christians to influence not just individuals but entire cultures. Ironically, this is the same thing I thought before attending part of the Verge conference last year. That was the conference that led me to inviting myself on staff at All Saints. So, once again, I found myself at a motivating conference learning about both personal and cultural renewal through service.
At Q, I discovered that people are doing amazing things in our country and in the world, and they want to share these ideas. I heard many great ideas and came home wanting our congregation to aspire to similar things as some of the speakers. I wish for all of us to be stirred by the message of service. But first, I want to ask where your heart is with service.
- Have you identified where you are serving?
- Are you serving somewhere in Austin?
- Are you serving your family by trying hard to raise your children in the nurture and admonition of the Lord?
- Are you dedicating time and talents to All Saints?
I would really like to know how All Saints can be supporting you in your area of service. Please let me know- firstname.lastname@example.org
** Lest you think this is some sort of guilt trip about how you are not serving enough or in the right manner and that I have all of the answers, all of that post-conference inspiration has led me to do the following since arriving back in Austin: sleeping, eating, cleaning, and unpacking. I have not fed any homeless, rescued any women from sex trafficking, or saved any children from becoming soldiers in their third world country… yet! 🙂
