This morning was about new beginnings…and closing doors.
On Friday we officially “closed” on the sale of our current property.
In January, we will take C3 church to the marketplace – meeting in multiple theaters at Waterford Town Center.
It’s the beginning of the future of C3…we will finally be able to be who we truly are.
It’s the closing of a chapter in all of our lives – these buildings…the past eighteen months of hell on earth…the inherited debt…the slander…the legal battles…the realization that a building doesn’t make a church – and that church membership doesn’t make someone Christ-like.
Doors close as others open. Now we just have to be courageous enough to walk through the open ones…and not linger too long in missing the ones that have closed.
I pray for strength – that I will not be the “weak link”. I pray for clarity of vision – for singular focus. I pray for grace and a heart of forgiveness toward those who have mercilessly persecuted those whom I love. I pray for forgiveness in those times when I have dealt too harshly toward those who have offended me. I pray for all of us.
May we be bold and strong, gentle and merciful, loving and gracious…
May we be C3.
