So, I'm not really sure where October went.
I definitely wrote letters for at least the first dozen days and well, after that it gets a bit blurry.
So I can't say that 30 letters were written...but alas it's not the end of the world.
I've been thinking for a while about the next 30 days and I have been inspired by three things:
1) a person who in the context of the congregation has people send pictures of times they see God at work in the world around them.
2) Back in the day, when working with the awesome youth at Resurrection Connection Day Camp in New Haven, CT, Peggy had this thing called "Caught ya being good" she would highlight different cool things that campers did throughout the day. (what a cool thing)
3) Something I saw in church today. With less than 5 minutes before worship, I had a moment to talk and pray with a woman who lost a loved one this past week. As we wrapped up our conversation, another woman walked in and continued to offer words of love, compassion and support...she walked in at just the right time. It was wonderful to see the Body of Christ alive and in action.
With those three things in mind...I've decided that the next 30 days will be about seeing God at work in the world around me and telling others about it. It'll mean blogging more often, which I had missed doing. I also hope for the opportunity to share with that individual or group that she/he/they are the God's work in the world around us.
We'll see how it goes. You'll definitely be in the loop...
Until the next spotting...
