Committed Christians

Colored Kite in a Blue SkyEach of us should gather a group of committed Christians around us like Jesus did. Lewis Garnsworthy, when Bishop of the Anglican Diocese of Toronto, asked his clergy to follow our Lord's example and draw twelve lay people into leadership with them for mutual support and encouragement. He made the point very clearly that those in the Household of Faith need one another. Consider the simple act of flying a church kite.✞

The Kite

"Who flies the kite?"
"I," said the boy;
"it is my joy; I fly the kite."
"Who flies the kite?"
"I," said the wind;
"it is my whim, I fly the kite."
"Who flies the kite?"
"I," said the tail;
"I make it sail, I fly the kite."
"Who flies the kite?"
All are wrong, all are right.
All fly the kite.

Who "flies the kite" in your church? Is flying the kite a shared ministry?
