OSL Stephen Ministries
In the Bleak Midwinter
But the Bible says that despite our human shortcomings (some laughable, some painfully consequential), we each have God-given gifts to be used to benefit others and glorify God. My New Year’s resolution was this: Be astonished! Be astonished by signs of God’s grace and presence—signs that often come through unexpected people, with unexpected gifts, during unexpected situations. How very much like God to show up, unexpected!
One of the ways God may show up in your life is through a Stephen Minister, with gifts of listening and caring with complete confidentiality. If you could benefit from those gifts during a difficult time, troubling situation, or challenging transition, talk to Pr. Tim Lemme or Deb Harlan in the Church Office (336-2942), or any Stephen Minister. They will match you with a Stephen Minister who will be there for you.
