This weekend was huge in our church.  We re-dedicated our building to God’s service as our big remodeling project comes to a close.  We called it A Celebration of God’s Faithfulness.  Former pastors returned to be a part of the celebration, former members and friends and family came home to witness a new beginning, a continuing of the work that God started 116 years ago, and a fresh reminder of what our mission really is right here on our corner of our small town.

Pastor Jimmy Draper, President Emeritus of Lifeway, even came to deliver our celebration message.  And, he was wonderful.  It was a great day for our church family.

But, all afternoon I’ve been just sitting here marveling at how beautiful the church really is.  I’m not even talking about the newly beautified building, although it looks amazing.  I’m talking about the Body of Christ.  The individuals who work together to carry out the mission of sharing the Gospel with a lost and dying world.  The Body of Christ needs its Jimmy Drapers.  And its other pastors, musicians, great leaders, great teachers.  It needs the speakers, the singers, the planners and the idea people.
