Sometimes the gratification of what you strive to do overtakes the discomfort and challenge that it takes you to get there.
It was one hot Sunday morning that stretched into an even hotter Sunday afternoon. Even the sticks of frozen sugar water beaded with sweat as they watched the sun beat down on those hard-headed Metro folk. No amount of 106-degree heat index weather was going to deter these warm-blooded human beings from casting a shadow on a community that sometimes just needs shade from the heat that the world places on them. It was a simple act, but one that spoke volumes of the intentional desire of this church to serve. They served, not for the benefits of money, or the esteem of accomplishment, but served “just because”. Why not serve those that are closest to you…sounds simple enough, right?
