Today I had the privilege to sit down for a 30 minute conversation with one of our Cross Point volunteers whom I had never met before. This incredibly sweet, super vibrant, insanely passionate young women regurgitated our vision better than I do most days. As I asked her why she served, she gushed with fervor over the importance of making people feel welcome and how that was the thing that made Cross Point distinct for her. For the first time she felt like she belonged at a church. That she was known, loved and appreciated. She has found community and is on a mission to purposefully help others find it too.
I couldn’t have been more proud and I couldn’t have been more ashamed at the same time!
So proud of a volunteer who ‘gets it’. A VOLUNTEER who gives and serves and loves and contributes to making Cross Point the church we dream for it to be.
So ashamed that I didn’t come to work with the same passion and fervor that she did. That it took a volunteer to lead me today to a place of gratefulness and appreciation for the special place that God has allowed me to be a part of.
What good in your life are you taking for granted because it’s become too ordinary?
