God can and will accomplish great and wonderful things through us. For me, this sometimes looks like plunging toilets with good grace and dignity. Yes, this is ministry!
It sometimes looks like rocking my sick baby to sleep and realizing that I am holding, not just a life, but Life. Yes, this is ministry!
It sometimes looks like celebrating how our congregation is helping to form the faith of my children while I’m doing something else. Yes, this is ministry!
It is the moments in which I stop wanting someone else’s life, flooded with gratitude for the one I have. What does it look like for you? What is your ministry?
