Sometimes it may feel like all you do week in and week out is “block and tackle.” My good friend Chad Clemons, pastor at Anthem Church, Gainesville, FL, describes what has happened at Anthem over the last few weeks as such. “We were just doing blocking and tackling drills and all of a sudden we are now over 200.” It does often feel like that in a new church…same old thing, same old result UNTIL, something mysterious appears into the mix, and bumps your church up to the next level. Often times you don’t even know what you did or didn’t do or God did or didn’t do to make that happne….Now that gets fun! So, keep doing what you do, make it better each week, keep fundraising, keep loving people even with 30 and 40 and 50, keep trusting, “when you’re going through hell, keep on going” (as the song says), and stay with it. Hey, I like that for myself…I needed that, what about you?
