Even thought we had to take a break from the summit due to the Sunday Celebration and the church-wide picnic, we finished off well. In fact, I communicated to the leaders that part of the leadership training was learning how to serve as well as reaching out to the other parts of our church community.
We gathered together for the last session and I gave an exhortation about how this year we will need a heart of fortitude, faithfulness, and faith. Then, we spent some time in prayer for the church and also for one another.
There is a sense of “newness” in the air. The foundation is laid and now we need to put a lot of these things into practice.
It really does feel like a new season.
We signed on some rookies, released some players, and we made some trades and now we are set for a championship year.
