Maybe you have never heard this, but I have. People say, “Is this all there is to the Kingdom – going to church, being good. If I have an opportunity, sharing my faith…” Of course, we know there are the ‘special ones’ - those that have ‘callings’ and ‘ministries,’ then there is the rest of us. We work, maybe at home, maybe in an office, factory, shop or store. We have families, t-ball, soccer, never enough time for everything and usually just barely enough money! We watch American Idol and gather with family for Thanksgiving.
Somehow we feel like we are walking on a treadmill, going nowhere fast. We’re frustrated at the way things are going. We all have ideas on how to ‘fix things’. But, interestingly – in this land of democracy, government of the people, by the people and for the people – we don’t feel we have a voice. Of course, maybe everything is really like a big factory. If we just do our bit, everything will get done, pretty much as well as it can. We hear stories about people who make a difference. We admire them. But we are not them. We hope something changes but we also have those creeping cynical thoughts…
