The summer has begun. And once again, it’s been a privilege for the Harvest 2010 Summer Team to prepare at Troy UMC in Troy, IL. We spent the week working on music, dramas, and other aspects of leadership at the church. In addition to being in the building all week, we were also the recipients of wonderful hospitality. People from the church housed the team and provided meals. A huge thanks to all those from our congregation and community that helped create a great experience for the team. I appreciate Troy UMC taking an interest in sending this team into mission.
The church ought to be the pace setter for loving people and making them feel welcome and comfortable. I know from experience that it makes a life long impact. It’s one of the ingredients for transformed lives.
