Bible says, Don’t neglect the day of small beginnings, for the Lord rejoices to see the work begin! Zechariah 4:10
Once a month on a Saturday, we gather. This gathering is a small group of women who live and work hard on neighboring farms nearby. We come together to connect with each other for quality friendship, conversation and faith. During this time we transform the Kids Club space into Mama’s tea and coffee time! You see, with us, God had no fancy agenda, no formal presentation when He gave us Jesus. God sent his Son to a little hillside, outside a little town, in the middle of the night, born to a young couple in a barn. Then, He sent all of heavens angels to sing to a simple group of shepherds watching their sheep outside of Bethlehem.
For God, He must have thought shepherds were very important indeed, that they were the ones he chose to tell the good news about Jesus to FIRST.
He tends his flock like a shepherd: He gathers the lambs in his arms and carries them close to his heart; He will gently lead the mother sheep with their young. Isaiah 40:11
And He is Immanuel, God with us! In our work, in our sleep, in our play, in our gathering. If we will tune our hearts to his beat, and simply make space for Him, magical things can happen.
In Him is life, and this life is Light for ALL. John 1:4
