From Pastor Nancy:
I was reminded this week about this poem attributed to Oscar Romero, former Archbishop of San Salvador. If Lent is about finding breathing space, this poem/prayer/reflection gave me the gift of taking a deep breath in a challenging season of ministry.
 
A Future Not Our Own
It helps now and then to step back and take a long view.

The Kingdom is not only beyond our efforts, it is beyond our vision.

We accomplish in our lifetime only a fraction of the magnificent enterprise that is God's work.

Nothing we do is complete, which is another way of saying that the kingdom always lies beyond us.

No statement says all that could be said.
No prayer fully expresses our faith. 
No confession brings perfection, no pastoral visit brings wholeness.

No program accomplishes the Church's mission.
No set of goals and objectives include everything.

This is what we are about. We plant the seeds that one day will grow. 
We water the seeds already planted knowing that they hold future promise.

We lay foundations that will need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects far beyond our capabilities.

We cannot do everything, and there is a sense of liberation in realizing this. 
This enables us to do something, and to do it very well.

It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning, a step along the way, 
an opportunity for the Lord's grace to enter and do the rest.

We may never see the end results, but that is the difference 
between the master builder and the worker.

We are workers, not master builders, ministers, not messiahs. 
We are prophets of a future not our own.

Amen. We are planting seeds. We are laying foundations here in Fulton, KY/ South Fulton, TN. We cannot do everything that is needed, but we can be the Makerís workers!
