#TellHisStory: Small Things Done With Great Love

October 22, 2013 | 2 comments

These days, I hear a lot about how the church is failing people. How it’s too stodgy or irrelevant or happy-clappy or judgmental or legalistic or pick-your-favorite-adjective-and-insert-it-here. No doubt, the church has been one or all of those things for many people down through the ages.

But let me tell you about Paula:

Paula was church, the way church was intended to be, right in my living room, and again in my mailbox. Because she rang a doorbell. Because she picked up a pen.

It didn’t cost her more than the gas to our house, and the stamp on the envelope.

Read about Paula today over at The High Calling.

And then? Do one small thing for someone else. It might not change the trajectory of someone’s faith life. Then again, it might.

So, what’s your Story? A #TellHisStory is any story that connects your story into the story of God.

Your words matter to God. They matter to people. And they matter to me!

    Thanks so much for the opportunity to link up. I loved reading about how Paula came just when you needed it. That is Church – the body caring for one another. So thankful. 🙂
