A Habitat for Divinity

It was truly a humble honor to represent all of you at the dedication of our most recent Habitat for Humanity project. I was not here to do any of the work, but was invited to offer the prayer of dedication.

I met the family that has been blessed by our generosity and service, and I can tell you that their joy was beyond anything that words alone could describe. Those who had accomplished the extraordinary transformation were there—not to be recognized for their outstanding work—but to give thanks to the family for the privilege of being involved.

It was a time to celebrate the way faith in God had made us family to each other, and God was there to receive our dedication. In my prayer I thanked God for the way habitats built for humanity also become dwelling places for divinity; and in that great effort I caught a glimpse of the mission spirit of our congregation. It is beautiful in my eyes, and I can't wait to see what God does with it.
