Awesome work at the spring cleaning bee this morning at St. James! As I walked home I thought about purging things. Is it similar to a baptism, when we die to our old lives (stuff) and enter into new lives and beginnings? Some things define who we are (as a congregation) and we keep to remember. Some things hold us back from being new people in Christ (or provide a fire hazard). Some things we long to have the time and energy to rework into something new, but really have to let go because we don’t have those resources. I am grateful that God has all the time, energy and power to rework us, when we allow it, so that we can continue to faithfully serve and honour Him, regardless of our limitations.
