The month of March is roaring like a lion busy for us. This past weekend we officially kicked off our core team meetings. The whole team was in Austin for the weekend. We spent Saturday showing the team, the sights, sound, smells and food of Austin. Later that night we had our “official” core team meeting.
Personally I can tell you that during our worship time I was so blown away seeing everyone who has or is about to make a big sacrifice with this plant. Many will be moving here to Austin, which means quitting jobs, moving families, leaving family behind, adjusting to a new city, finding a job, etc.
On the other hand you have the ones that are from Austin who has or will step down from positions in a church that they have been with for years now. We are all heading to a great big unknown right now. All of this has us going “WHAT DID WE JUST DO!!!!”
While we head into this unknown there is an excitement amongst the team. You could feel it all weekend…there was this “electricity” when we talked about “WHAT COULD BE AND WHAT NEEDS TO BE”.
I know it helps that we are all in the same place TOGETHER, stepping into new roles…TOGETHER, stepping into a new season…TOGETHER , stepping out in faith…TOGETHER, taking a huge risk for GOD…TOGETHER. There is just something about being TOGETHER in unity for the cause of Christ.
My prayer for our team is Romans 15:5-6
“May the God who gives endurance and encouragement give you a spirit of unity among yourselves as you follow Christ Jesus, so that with one heart and mouth you may glorify the God and Father of our Lord Jesus Christ.”
