President John F. Kennedy was visiting NASA headquarters and stopped to talk to a man. “And what do you do?” he asked. The man, who was a janitor, replied, “I’m helping to put a man on the moon, sir.”
Our lives are filled. Sunday, once a Day of Rest, is now part of the weekend where we do the thousand things we cannot do during the week. We have an Hour of Rest. Church is no longer the center of our lives. It’s one part of our life.
We are pulled in a thousand different directions. For many, this change feels totally out of control. Church has become just one more thing to do. It’s an event we attend, not an experience we create.
My vision for Wellsville Baptist is that we allow each person’s gifts to flourish and each one’s call to become crystal clear. Regardless of age or tenure as a church member… God is asking us, “What do you do here?’
We are involved in creating a joint venture, connecting people to purpose. When we pay attention to purpose, details become important. Time is an asset.
In worship, study, fellowship and prayer, I strive to identify what’s valuable for you. Our noble goal is not placing a man on the moon, it’s far more critical… we have the City of Wellsville to save.
Each week, we come together for the express purpose of making every day Christ’s day.
What do you do? “I am putting people in Heaven.”
