At the National Day of Prayer Service

Yesterday, at the National Day of Prayer noon service, I had the chance to lead with some people from our church, a new musician friend in Adam Jansen and some local pastor friends.

At the end of the service, I said to the crowd: If you don’t have a church home, I want to shamelessly ask you to come to ours. With so many churches represented there, I gave a brief pause for shock value, and then pointed to the other pastors who were joining us and said, “Because, Tom, Justin, and Adam here each lead great congregations of our church.”

It felt a little awkward, but also refreshing to speak of the different congregations in Lafayette as “our church.” Perhaps that kind of talk will catch on at least with me.

    Yeah, at first I really thought you were just talking about LCC. I very much appreciated how you finished the invitation. It came across really well as a much needed perspective that we are all part of the same church. The whole event was an encouraging experience of the unity of the body of Christ.

    A couple other people who knew me thought the same thing, but in fact, I never once mentioned my name or which church I led. The people who didn’t know me would never have known which church was “our church”!
