Lent Day 22: WIGIAT? Forward Leadership Community

Each day during Lent I am updating my blog with using the theme of WIGIAT? Where is God in all this?

Today, I had the chance to go to a seminar for something called the Forward Leadership Community, which is a something our congregation is participating in. We heard some great things and have gotten to participate in some exercises that have caused us to think and grow.

The absolute best part about the whole program, is the chance to get to work as a team with three other people from Christ the King. We all have different strengths and interests, yet we certainly share a common calling to grow and be active leaders in sharing God's grace at CtK and beyond. What's great, is that we don't spend our time trying to prove each other wrong or come up with the best idea, instead we appreciate the different gifts and stories that we each offer through the giving of ourselves. What's more, is that we get to hear from leaders and congregations from around the synod, and be a part of an even bigger team.

When we are doing the work of God, it is never alone, and it is never a matter of importance. It's only a matter of joining together, sharing our lives, and letting grace do the rest.
