Gratitude.

grangerpicI had the opportunity to go to Granger Community Church last week and participate in some of their workshops.  I have followed their church closely over the last several years.  The church is right next to my hometown of Mishawaka, so I have had the opportunity to visit it a few times.  That has always been a treat.  But last week, I was blown away by the genuine humility and love that was shown to me and a couple hundred other guests as we attended the workshops.  It is not often that you meet people that are in position to have great influence that are totally selfless and humble about it.  In fact, I have experienced the exact opposite over the last few years.  It was so refreshing to see people that would be considered very successful and maybe even to have “arrived” (in some people’s eyes) to take the time to pour themselves into other people; to take the time to discuss their failures as well as their successes.  Some of them even took the time to meet with me personally.

Over the next few days, I am going to post some of the interviews I was able to do with some of their staff.  I hope you can see the passion that these people have for Jesus and for helping people take their next step.  Thank you Granger.  I am thankful we are on the same team. I am better for spending a few days with you!
