We have this incredible community, and we also need to work continuously on strengthening our community – – not only here in this church, but in the world beyond these walls. This requires us as individuals to discern and share our gifts. It requires that each one of us recognizes, affirms, nurtures, and supports each other’s gifts. And we must also include regular times of rest and renewal – – some peace, joy, and love to strengthen our hope. Otherwise, our fires will burn out.
