Community Leaders

Well, it's nearly official that Doug and I are now Community Leaders at Gateway. I say 'nearly' because it won't be official official until May 15th, but that's for the sake of the payroll folks. We'll be sharing the job, but it will probably be me with 60% of the work and Doug with 40%. I have more free time and a more flexible schedule, so it just makes sense to do it that way. What, you may be asking, is a Community Leader? There are a lot of small groups at Gateway and each one, naturally, has a leader. Community Leaders are the people who support and pastor those small group leaders. Basically, we have about a dozen small groups under our care and our job is to connect with the leaders of those groups on a regular basis to get to know them and find out how we (and the rest of the church) can help them be the best leaders they can be. Does that make any sense?

Anyway, I'm excited about doing it and I'm looking forward to being 'official'.

Here is the next installment of 'What I learned at the Women's Retreat.' These are thoughts I wrote down during a small group discussion...

Pray that God would teach/enable me to encounter his generosity with joy instead of guilt.

Sin is like cancer - Do what you have to to get rid of it. Cut off what you need to!
