At a local church

At a local church, I saw pain and suffering in lethargy of this congregation, people who felt like they had been doing the same old same old for 30 years. They had been pecking away at this shell of lassitude with a small committee from the inside, and a new pastor from the outside; but in a meeting called “How Then Shall We Serve?” you could see them break out. People went from lethargy to activity when someone was bold enough to ask “Should this fellowship hall be painted after 27 years?” With donated ladders, rollers, brushes, paint, skill and labor it was done—in 4 days! People are whom we need.
