Calling all you church people....
Hey! I’m talking to you!
All you worship-singing-music-playing wonders - I see you preparing and practicing for weeks and tweaking your sets and memorizing all the music. I see you.
All you production-crafting-lighting-mastering-sound-engineering-lyric-projecting wonders - I see you setting up all the elements so if done just right you won’t be noticed at all. I see you.
All you graphic-crafting-video-producing-written-text-website-creating wonders - I see you slaving over computers and burning the midnight oil to meet the deadlines for all the last minute changes. I see you.
All you facility-preparing-aesthetic-beautifying-wonders - I see you setting out chairs and cleaning and painting and decorating because it matters. I see you.
All you volunteering-ninja-logistic-people-moving-car-parking wonders - I see you giving of your time so many people will have an incredible first experience. I see you.
All you pastoral-speaking-shepherding-guiding wonders - I see you crafting and redrafting your message and in awe of all God has done and what He will do again. I see you.
All you children-wrangling-lesson-planning-kid-influencing wonders - I see you cutting and pasting and making merry for the little ones to have the best experience possible. I see you.
All you home-fires-burning husbands and wives of ministry wonders - I see you keeping all the schedules and keeping dinner hot and shuffling the kids for the sake of the kingdom. I see you.
and all you congregation-coming-Christmas-finest-dressing wonders - I see you keeping traditions and singing with Joy on your lips and taking the pictures and making the effort to get everyone in the car. I see you.
I just wanted to say - thank you. Thank you for all of it. You are seen and abundantly appreciated. From my heart to you church people - big or small - far and near - as you make an eternal impact in the Kingdom in these days…. whether you started services last week or have just one late tomorrow night. Thank you.
I hope you have a very Merry Christmas.
