I occasionally like to challenge myself with the following questions, regarding my relationship with the church.
In the past year, how much commentary have you offered? That is, your opinion about what someone else was doing or creating?
In the past year, how much creation have you offered? That is, you showing up and offering generous leadership, an educational experience, a moment of beauty, a sacred space. Something that helps us thrive.
I am certain that we need more generous creation. I am not sure that we need more commentary.
