Upon reading this post from Shaun Groves (and the 2 or 3 posts that led to it), I was reminded again of how blessed I am to be a part of the Element community. If you're an Elementer, thank you for "getting it." Thank you for loving your neighbors more than yourselves. We have regularly served the least of these in our community since we started, and we are approaching 12 months of Bold as Love, and not a single one of you has ever complained about or questioned why we don't spend more money or time on ourselves.
You are a rare breed, and I am honored and humbled to be your pastor.
