Current Series Lego Life

February 22, 2011

Do you remember playing with Legos as a child? I can remember spending hours building, creating, and having a good time. One of my favorite parts was actually building Legos. You got these really cool directions that showed you how to do everything one step at a time. Even if it was a long process to build, having the ability to see things coming together was enough of a rush to keep you going. Wouldn’t it be cool if our faith was that way? Sometimes it doesn’t seem like that is happening. We feel like everything was coming together, but for some reason we hit a spiritual wall. I’m looking forward to this Sunday as we talk about what happens when get frustrated in faith and how we can expect God to still be there for us.

Does your church have a good process for following up with visitors? For my youth group at Statesboro First United Methodist Church I hand write each student and thank them for visiting. I recently saw this video and has me thinking about pushing myself further.

This video is of Adam Hamilton, Sr. Pastor of The United Methodist Church of the Resurrection. Now he is dealing with adults instead of youth which is a big difference than students, but it got me thinking, how can we push that human connection more to communicate we care and value our visitors.
