Sociograms and Grace

Today we presented papers on our churches that included simple sociograms. As we discussed all of the dynamics that make up congregations and denominations I began to wonder why anyone would ever want to join a church. I then remembered grace! I also met with Dr. David Garland, today, about a project I am working on. We talked about the New Testament, and God's work in the world today. He is a wonderful example of servant leadership and true humility. He "fleshes out" the psalm that we focused on in our morning prayer group. If we all would follow this example then we would have a far greater impact on a hurting world.

O Lord, my heart is not lifted up, my eyes are not raised too high;
I do not occupy myself with things too great and too marvelous for me.
But I have calmed and quieted my soul, like a weaned child with its mother; my soul is like the weaned child that is with me.
O Israel, hope in the Lord from this time on and forevermore. Psalm 131
