More about making a difference

Earlier this week, I published a post called “Making a Difference” in which I pointed my readers to a family who stopped focusing on “church-stuff” in order to actually make a difference in people’s lives.

In the last few days, I’ve run across other people who are also living out this concept of making a difference as the church.

Kathleen at “Church in a Circle” gives us a good example in her post “Fresh Start Community – Spread your wings and fly.”

In Kathleen’s description, I love the fact that people seeking to serve addicts soon find that the addicts are serving them. What a concept! God working through the broken…

In a similar (but slightly different) vein, Jeff at “Virginia Tenor” wonders about serving others to “make a difference” in his post “KWOL in the Rolling Ridges.” I love that Jeff is concerned that his desire to serve others will turn into just another example of “church-stuff.” I think that’s a good concern…

So, please read those posts… and ask God how he wants you to make a difference in someone’s life.
