Carolyn's sermon was a thoughtful exposition on how to stir the flame of faith which God has given us, especially with respect to the ways we are to serve and pray together. Indeed, as Carolyn stated, God calls all of us to offer ourselves in mission to those who are struggling, especially in a place like the Lucille Raines Residence. We can make a difference when we allow the Spirit to use us. This is what makes the faith alive and vital.
All the gifts we can share add up in wonderful ways.
How may we in our lives each day join in God's work around us, where we work and live? How can we, as many of our women shared during the services, make a difference by joining in fellowship and service with fellow followers of Jesus? It is an invitation to grow in faith and commitment.
Carolyn Marshall is the Executive Director of the Lucille Raines Residence in Indianapolis, Indiana.
