Partnering with you in your child's formation
I was once accused by a friend of not letting my nerd side show. Some—maybe all—of you have seen my nerd side by now. It’s not that scary. (…or is it?) But it can be scary for the person who’s “nerding out.” Being passionate about something, loving something, makes you vulnerable.
How do you find what you love? …who you are? …what you’re meant to put energy toward in this life? How do you not be scared in the process?
We’ve been talking a lot about this in small groups on Wednesdays. We (students and adults alike) don’t need to get all tied into knots about our identity or calling. We are loved. We are hidden in Christ. And when it comes to figuring out how to spend our lives, we’re given lots of freedom and clear places to start. The Epistles are unanimous that Christians have two jobs: be free, and serve others.
One of my favorite musicians is Sufjan Stevens (insert Nerd Alert here). In his album, Avalanche, there’s a lyric that goes “The mind that knows itself / has a mind to serve the other.” Confidence in identity and genuine giving go together.
Service means so much more than clocking volunteer hours. That’s a scratch on the surface. Real service is a chance to discover yourself and others, and the God who made us.
See the calendar and below for several invitations to join us in service over the next month!
