It's always about this time before Easter or Christmas that I feel the most vulnerable, the most unsure.
Many times I've had ideas, themes and possible elements for special services tucked away in folders, or deep in my mind for sometimes several years. When you've thought about something for a long time, you begin to question and doubt whether it's really the right direction to go. You wonder if you even still believe in it enough to pitch the idea and rally people around it.
And then as I pray and begin to work, often times I'm amazed to find the idea found long ago - now makes sense or has gained support or understanding.
It's an amazing process that can only be explained by the fact that God uses our planning, our creativity in His timing to present His never changing message.
Does He need us to move His message forward, no. But, I am eternally thankful that He decided to use us in a small way, a way that lets us put to use whatever talents He's given us to serve Him.
Our team will all begin to gather around this Easter concept next week, please pray that it will be obvious to all of us if this can and should be developed into our Easter at Crossroads.
I cherish your prayers, thank you!
