A thanks-be-to-God! moment

We've been working to refresh and build up our children's ministry on Sundays. We've had a rotating team (all women - and gifted!) and been working to coordinate the kids' activities with the sermon theme of the week.

I've been joking around about men discovering the gift of teaching, and lo and behold the Advent/Christmas schedule sports two guys to work into the rotation.

Also, one of the church men has become fired up to challenge the other guys to deeper discipleship, and has already "reenlisted" a couple of guys who were drifting toward inactivity.

In other congregations I've served, the involvement of the men has led to renewal in the whole church. Most gratifying are the stories of renewal in families as this picks up momentum.

So, thanks be to God!
