as many of you probably know by now the whiting mill is closing. adam h told me about this first and then immediately asked “what can we and what can the big “c” church in the point area do?” i think it is a great question and something that we should respond to as followers of JESUS CHRIST. between now and february 360 people will be losing their jobs. how does the bride of CHRIST respond? i don’t have the answer right now but i am open to ideas and invite all of you guys to pray with the tapestry leadership team and i.
i sent the following email out to all the local pastors whose email addresses i have.
hey guys & girls,
the tapestry leadership team and i have been praying and talking together since the news of the whiting mill closing. we have been wondering how the bride of CHRIST could respond in a way that glorifies JESUS by meeting the needs of people created in HIS image. so i am turning to you guys. do you think there is a way that the church in the point area can respond together. i am sure all of the churches we belong to will respond individually but i was wondering if any of you would be interested in exploring ways that we might could respond together? i don’t have any plans right now other than trusting that GOD has placed all of us in leadership within our congregations to equip HIS people to do HIS works.
in HIS love and mine,
i’m open to everyone’s ideas no matter how extreme.
SIDE NOTE – don’t worry mom, i used capitalization in the actual email. 🙂
