She was on her way to our toddler group and was bringing her 3 year old daughter who hadn’t been to the group since she had started pre school several months earlier.
As they drove along, her daughter was asking where they were going which is when her mum defined us as the church that glues.
Shouldn’t this be the description of any church?
We should be expecting the glue of God’s love, presence and power to fix things.
We can see people’s relationship with God and our relationships with one another fixed and restored when the church is acting as a place that glues.
Do we believe there are things that God can’t fix? Is anything too difficult for him?
Ironically we didn’t do any glueing at toddlers today but the toddler in question was happy to do the finger painting that was on offer instead.
God calls us to work with him to fix and restore things. Will we join him with what he is doing?
God, help us to be a people that glue for your glory.
