Growing Pains

I feel like we are experiencing some serious growing pains right now.  I look around and see fantastic things happening, but also see how far we have to go yet.  We want to be big, grown up, able to do the things that a grown up organization can do.  When I was a kid I couldn’t wait to be an adult.  My kids now cannot wait to be adults.  We rush and rush and try and try to be that thing we think is good, cool or “has arrived.” Yet we need those experiences that happen along the way.  We need time to develop. shoot Too much too quickly can lead to disastrous results.  No matter how grown up and mature I hope this church is, we need this time of stretching, experiencing, trial and error.  We haven’t arrived yet, and that is okay.  We have some more growing to do, and although it is hard to wait, I am excited to see what we will develop into!

  1. can’t believe how much time i’ve spent wishing to be older, better, bigger (well, maybe not bigger) and looking back at those times many of them were much better than i realized! enjoy this time (as impossible as that seems) there are great things happening in the middle of all of this mess and you’ll never be able to get this time back!
