Being the church

I love this quote. I only recently learned this not too long ago myself. For many years I thought that church was the place where we went to worship, to hear the Word taught and to be with other believers. I didn't realize that we are to go out and be the church every day, as we go about our lives. Now, that makes so much more sense to me. Why should church be confined to a building? What would make that place any more special than any other place? Worship gatherings are important, but the building itself is nothing more than a building. As I think about being the church, I want to share a site that I came across recently that I really love. 

I haven't thoroughly looked at this site, but from what I've seen of it, I love it. It helps you coordinate meals to needy friends/people, and they give recipe ideas, schedule help/ideas...I think the idea is fabulous. If you need some help with getting meals to someone, consider this site. What an awesome way to be the church to someone who really needs it!

Here's the RECIPES & TIPS page.

I've been reflecting, how can I go out and be the church this week. I have to admit, I'm not very good at this. Sometimes I feel like my schedule is so consumed with my own things, that I don't have time for anyone/anything else. That's just an excuse for me to be lazy about it. I believe we were meant to be a blessing to others, and I really do want to I'm going to pray and think of a way to bless someone this week. Will anyone do it with me? Will anyone go be the church and bless someone this week?

I'll end this post with a pic of Jude and I on the hayride we went on a few weekends ago. He really was happy, although he's got on his fake smile-for-a-picture face.

Love me some sun flare!
