Remember the Timex commercials when John Cameron Swayze would say, It just keeps on ticking and ticking. That's back a few days on black and white TV.
I like that idea regarding the kingdom; it just keeps ticking.
I had an idea. Jenny Williams is one of our delightful young professionals at Memorial. She just returned from a missions tour with AIM in Mexico. She is adorable.
A few weeks back I asked Jenny if she would like to team up in an Encouraging Ministry. I would give Jenny a fifty dollar bill and she would take someone to lunch sometime to give them a boost. She was to bring back three things: a report, a receipt, and the change. We intend to repeat the process once Mary gets another paper route and saves up another $50.
Last night she walked into my office all goose-bumped. She loves God....and people. (Sorta fulfills a command I heard one time, huh?) She handed me back a receipt and change. She had taken a young couple to lunch Sunday after church and the bill was $32.20.
The report? Well....it is so special. You see Memorial experienced a young man standing at the mic at the end of services last Sunday morning confessing his bride (as of Friday) was over three months pregnant. It was an emotional time for them...for all as they repented of their sin and asked for our support. So sweet Jenny took them to lunch!
Don't you know they needed that? Don't you know Jenny needed that? Don't you know we all needed to know of such wonderful networking ideas...because there is always a God-report to be heard? Take your ideas and run. There is so much to be imagined...He said....Eph. 3:20.
