Learning to be Humble
I find that this year everything seems to be blending together more and more. In a normal year when I would write this update I would think back on the big events that have happened, or think about our large group meetings, but now without those markers things seems to be a blur. While we may be missing these big events as markers, there is a flip side that is really positive. Denton FOCUS is doing really well, there haven't been any major crises or events, and ministry is still happening day in and day out. Perhaps even more so than in a normal year. I've found that people on the edges of my life seem to be further away, but people that I see every week or almost every day I feel much closer too. I know exactly what is going on in their lives, and they could say the same for me. In this closeness another level of ministry unfolds, perhaps one more like Jesus' ministry in the first place. One where people know and are known. One where we can focus on what is happening in the lives around us. So for this blog instead of focusing on the macro like I usually do, I want to focus on the micro. Specifically how God has been working in my peer team in the last couple weeks.
