From Series: " Scattered, Smothered, and Covered®"
When Summer arrives, the church scatters. No surprise there.
But what if that’s not as negative as it sounds?
Could there be something redemptive and purposeful to this mid year diaspora?
For one, I can think of nothing more redemptive and purposeful than family vacations. What better way could there be to live out the values that we speak of each Sunday, than to deliberately make time for rhythms of rest and renewal.
But there is another value to the summer scatter. One that all-too-often remains unobserved, and under-celebrated.
I’m talking about Summertime Mobilization.
It may surprise you to know how many members within our congregation have spent time over the last two months responding to some variation of the call of God upon their lives.
To do so, some have traveled. Others have stayed put.
Either way, many within our JCBC family have opened up their lives in very significant ways over the past two months, so that the love of Christ would be mobilized within and through them…over the Summer!
That, my friends, is worth celebrating.
