I missed a week of Ministry is Relationships, but here is the synopsis I was given:
The missing *ingredient for relational action in ministry
- equipped-ness } = ACTION
The diagram was a little hard to replicate but hopefully you get the idea that 1,2,3 = Action
Also, the main idea was to put your antennas up and keep them up! Be on the look out for relationships and how to nourish and create relationships.
Whatever you do, work at it with all your heart, as working for the Lord, not for men
Forgive me, if these thoughts are a little scattered, but they seem to be the main idea. Be aware of your surroundings, notice others, incorporate others, don’t let your groups become exclusive, ect.
I am much more comfortable sticking with the group of friends I have and not being the out-going meet everyone kind of person. The tricky part is to keep your antennas up and be authentic and real. I don’t want to meet people just because “I’m supposed to” or that’s what is “expected” of me. I am drawn to authentic, real people rather than those who seem or appear to be putting on an act of caring.
