Few of us have life-changing moments like St. Paul and Martin Luther. Most of us are on a slow road in our faith development. God works on us through our relationships. We learn who we are and who we are not by our experiences with others and our involvement in doing things together.
Adult Sunday School closed out the year by participants engaging in an exercise to uncover our gifts as persons. Some of us turn out to be organized, others are people-oriented, still others possessing certain talents. Our gifts reveal a lot about who God created us to be. No one person has them all, so, God made us to live in community. We need each other to bring out the best that we have to offer.
It is a proven fact that persons who are part of a supportive network tend to live longer, healthier lives. At heart, we are social beings. The church is God’s gift to us for the kind of engagement that nourishes our souls and empowers us to serve.
Adult Sunday School gave us a privilege to know and affirm one another in such a unique way in our closing weeks together. What better definition of love than looking for and bringing out the best in other persons. What better way to build faith?
