Shift worker missionaries at Silklife

Great time praying this morning and during this time of worship and seeking God for the town it struck me again how God is more interested in who we are in him and what we do for him than going through any religious hoops.

I was specifically reminded that at Silklife we have a few shift workers including doctors, a nurse and a policeman who represent us as a church in our town. As well as these we have many busy people who also sometimes can’t be at an event or with us on a Sunday morning due to the nature of their work.

Far from their job being an inconvenience to church life, we must see (and I think we do!) that they are missionaries we have the privilege of calling brothers and sisters. They are smack bang in the middle of God’s calling on their life and serving him on their called front line, serving in a way that we can’t. Where would the church be without them? Though we may need to create ways to relationally connect if we miss them from time to time, they are a invaluable part of who we are.
