Serving the servants

I was driving home from a VETAMORPHUS info night tonight, and I saw the lights on, as they are every Monday night, at the CFA (Country Fire Authority) at the end of my street.

For a while now, particularly sparked by some of the ideas we were tossing around in our local area Mission Action Teams, of how cool it would be for us as the church to get out and thank all of the people in our local area for all that they do to serve our community.

So tonight I did just that. I think we as the church should be on about looking after the people in our community, and these guys definitely are, so in some way they're serving the Kingdom of God-whether or not they would say it as such.

I told them I was starting a church 200m down the road, and if there was anything we could do to be of service to them, to let me know.

Haha na Trav my house didn't burn down!

They just said, yeah cool, thanks for that, its good to be appreciated, good luck with the church and we'll give you a call when we need your help with anything. That was about it really, nothing out of the ordinary really.

The pastor of Anglesea Baptist Church (I think - one of the coastal Baptist Churches in Vic anyway) have a great relationship with the local CFA and the senior pastor is a volunteer member. Makes life interesting when there is an emergency call during a service!

The CFA is one of the better groups in the suburban and rural areas to link in with for mission. Keep going Digs!
