Every child of God is filled with the power of the Holy Spirit, specially gifted to play a unique and valued role in the body of Christ. No one is without gift or purpose. Spiritual gifts are not our talents or skills. They are the grace of God at work within us, empowering us to match our deep passions with the world’s deep need. The gifts are given to individuals, but they are given to build and strengthen community and to meet the needs of those around us. Begin the journey. Discover your gifts. Talk about your gifts with others. Strive together to understand your gifts and how you can use them to serve God, neighbor, and world. You have been gifted. You have been given a purpose.
What if I am not gifted?
It is our firm belief that everyone is gifted by God and that each person is uniquely and beautifully equipped for ministry and mission. Giftedness is not about privilege or special skills and talents. It is about listening more deeply to, and following more fully, the deepest desires of our hearts and God’s leading in our lives. This is the call to all people of faith — laity or clergy, flashy or quiet, knowledgeable or seeking.
Please come and join us every Thursday at 6:30 pm in Sunday School Room #205. There’s a sign up sheet in the parlor. Please come and find out how truly gifted you are. We’d love to have you. —Pat Sykes
