    How can we as a church embrace a more comprehensive approach to spiritual formation and discipleship? That was the question I posed at the end of this past Sunday’s sermon in an effort to spark some creative thinking about what it might look like for us to become more diligent caretakers of creation. After seeing from Scripture how Jesus has come to reconcile all things to God, I suggested that the church has the privilege of joining God in his renewal and restoration of all things. As Christians, we need to incorporate this responsibility into our pursuit of faithfulness as followers of Jesus. But the question that I’m left with is still this: How?

    The USDA attempts to promote balance in nutrition. Currently, if you visit choosemyplate.gov you will see a multi-color logo that encourages portions among fruits, vegetables, grains, protein, and dairy (note the absence of chocolate, coffee, and candy – bummer). Variety among these food groups is for our health. A healthy body requires a comprehensive approach.

    You’ve probably been in a situation before where you’ve been asked by a friend or coworker about your church. And more likely than not, one of the questions that might have accompanied such a conversation would have been one like this: “What sorts of things are you doing in the church?”

    Drew’s sermon on vocation as part of the Reformed and Reforming series got me thinking. I of course thought about the calling I have in my “day job.” But it also made me think about my calling as an elder. I’ve been an elder for a while now. But I still run into situations where this vocation of eldering still doesn’t feel like it fits.
