We Are, or Is God?

March 26, 2017

Dan R. Dick says in Disciplines 2017 (Upper Room Books, page 89), and the highlights are mine —

“Years ago I attended two churches in the same community. One congregation had about 3,000 members, while the other boasted just over 300. Both congregations were having celebrations of their ministries.

“When I attended the larger of the two churches, the lead pastor proudly proclaimed, ‘Let us celebrate together all the good and wonderful work we are doing for God!’

“The lay leader of the smaller church framed it a little differently. She said, ‘Friends, let us celebrate together all the amazing things that God is doing through us!‘”

Big difference.
