Ordinarily I would have given a pep talk to keep up their responsibilities as church liaisons. Get your paperwork in. Check in with churches in transition.
Not this month. It’s time to drop a ball or two for the love of God.
Who among us hasn’t missed a Zoom meeting because it didn’t make it onto our calendars? Or we needed an afternoon nap on a random Tuesday? Or we had a to-do list and checked off fewer items than we might have checked off a year ago.
And perhaps more importantly, can we be gracious when our pastors, elders, or volunteers drop a ball these days? Can we give them a break? Can we encourage people to take it a little easier?
It’s okay. There’s a lot going on. Drop a ball or two.
