Tonight is Session, and I'm going to open the meeting by asking Session members to describe their current spiritual lives in terms of a season of the year. Is your faith wintry right now? Hot as the Fourth of July? Somewhere in between?
I don't know how I'll answer.
It seems to me like it is a good thing to ask each other, though. Too often church meetings seem to put the highest priority on getting through the agenda and out the door. We miss the opportunity to have an quality time with one another as brothers and sisters in Christ. I don't want this church to get lost in busy-ness and that's a temptation. If we aren't loving and caring for each other in Christ's name, what are we doing?
So what season is it in your soul?
