We had 15 new members introduced to the church this morning in worship, including a couple of men who were baptized. There is something refreshing about seeing new people enter covenant with a community.
It shows us God's movement in the world. New Creation is sprouting up all over.
It gives opportunity for new faces to offer new and fresh perspectives in ministry.
It reminds the people of God of their own commitments and hopefully challenges us all to recommit to the body of Christ.
The challenge of course is to ensure that these men and women of faith find opportunities to serve in redemptive ministry and belong to authentic community. It is really cool that this sums up my job description! Here we go!
