4 questions, 4 answers

11 11 2008

Tonight we met with a small group of friends from church.  We were asked 4 questions related to our local church.  Here are the questions and my answers:

11102008-church1.  What brought you to our church?

I was brought to our church by my parents shortly after birth.  Except for the first three years of my married life, it has been my church home ever since.

2.  What is the most meaningful experience you have had at our church?

The day I married my beautiful wife almost 11 years ago.

OK, the first two questions were easy.  The next two, not so much…

3.  What is your dream for our church?

A church that is reaching out, one with a wide variety of people – diverse. A church that is not completely traditional and isn’t afraid to think outside the box.

4.  What gifts/passions do you have to make your dream a reality for our church?

I had two answers.  First, I am a great helper.  I am not a visionary thinker, but I can get behind someone who is. If you persuade me on an idea, I can execute whatever tasks required to make it happen.

Secondly, I have always been good at identifying the outsider, the marginalized one among us.  And, mostly, I am good at bridging the gap and reaching out to them (although not always).
