Today is an "equipping conference". We will 'be equipped' to do the 'work of the ministry' which is diverse, multifaceted , ever adapting, opportunity abounding requiring life long learning. I am outside watching the community of God's people assemble, who are diverse and multifaceted. I feel humble thanks for being purchased out of the community of the 'world' and placed into God's community (the church).
Lord, Thank you for your church.
