The Ministry of Office Work

Fellowship can thrive even on the ground of paperwork. Ash Wednesday’s bulletin, for example, was assembled in a joint venture from the Invitation & Outreach Committee, Susan as church secretary, and Mona from Young Life. When many busy hands work together, a task like this is quickly accomplished. This, too, makes church life meaningful, and those who experience it go oftentimes home with a smile on their faces. And since it was a bulletin this time, it can be said that God’s Word was working long before the actual service took place. This, of course, is something we Christians have known from the beginning.
