25 Nov Watching a church rise up…
In the wake of a tragedy like we have witnessed, I think it is important to take a moment and focus on the bright spots, celebrate the victories, and learn to hold on to them as we mourn. I would like to celebrate what I see in you. I see a church family rising up in a time of need with incredible LOVE. It is incredible to watch the way you are pouring your hearts out for the Avery’s.
Sunday afternoon, Belinda and I had the privilege of meeting with Brandi and Kelly to simply be there with them as they process through the difficulty. In that time we shared our hearts desire to see our church become a true Kingdom family around them. I really had no idea how incredible it would be to watch it happen. Thank you for who you are. So many of my own historical concepts of the church are being rewritten by the way you love each other.
Thing we can do to help the Avery’s in this process?
There is much more to do. The journey is just beginning for the Avery family. There is significant expense surrounding this tragedy. If you would like to be a part of helping ease that burden, you can give directly through Vintage. Just mark, “Avery,” in the ledger of your check and drop it in the giving box at our Connect table. We will channel resources to them in this time.
