An Encouraging Word...
In his book Everyday Discipleship for Ordinary People, Stuart Briscoe writes:
One of my young colleagues was officiating at the funeral of a war veteran. The dead man’s military friends wished to have a part of the service at the funeral home, so they requested the pastor to lead them down to the casket, stand with them for a solemn moment of remembrance, and then lead them out through the side door. This he proceeded to do, but unfortunately the effect was somewhat marred when he picked the wrong door. The result was that they marched with military precision into a broom closet, in full view of the mourners, and had to beat a hasty retreat covered with confusion.
This true story illustrates a cardinal rule of two. First, if you’re going to lead, make sure you know where you’re going. Second, if you’re going to follow, make sure that you are following someone who knows what he is doing!
This Sunday, after church, is the FBC annual meeting. Unless you don’t care whether your leaders are heading into a broom closet, you’ll want to be present to vote on the budget and to affirm those who will be leading the church in the coming year. We hope you’ll come find out what’s going on.
Sunday, May 16th the Youth will be selling pizza after the worship service and before the annual meeting. All proceeds will go to the kids who are going on the week long service trip to York, PA.
