As we get closer to launch, these Meetups help us all keep moving in the same direction. We want to be ready on our first Sunday to help people discover Jesus and The Journey. We are dreaming of all the guests who will come for the first time. We are dreaming of all the kids having a blast in their rooms. We are dreaming of the conversations and experiences in the lobby and Reach Cafe. We can’t wait to worship and be transformed together.
Life has its own rhythms, and seasons are a part of it. For many of us, summer is a time that is just a little different than the rest of the year. Maybe there are vacations. Maybe there is a little more free time. You probably get some more time with friends and around barbecues. Summer has a different pace to it.
For us, there’s definitely a different pace as we get ready to launch. Yes, we are definitely doing stuff, and we are spilling over with excitement. But we aren’t into that weekly service pace yet.
Summer is a good time to do some reflection. What has God been trying to do in you, but was hard to focus on in the busy season? Maybe now’s the time. What questions have you been asking, but it was too hard to really clear your mind to think about it? Maybe now’s the time.
I hope you take some time to have fun, to relax, to travel or to take a vacation, and I also hope you take some time to reflect. Embrace the pace of summer, and get all you can out of it.
