The Church In Our Hands
--John Ed Mathison, (Tried & True, Eleven Principles of Church Growth)
 
         Recently I was walking down the hall on a Sunday morning and stopped by a children's Sunday school class.  They has a little plastic church building that they used to collect their offering.  I was fascinated by the toy and picked it up to look at it.  Very quickly, one of the little boys said, "Be careful, John Ed, you have our church in your hands."  That statement both inspired and intimidated me.  In a larger sense, God has entrusted the church in our hands--What an awesome opportunity!
