Our church is having a Yard Sale tomorrow. It is a fundraiser for our Parking Lot Project. I also think there are going to be some other worthwhile goals accomplished in this Yard Sale. There are several people who are serving from our church to make this event possible. Desi Scullion and Margaret Thomson have done a very good job in getting others involved. It has been a blessing to see people working together to further the Lord’s work.
Yard Sales And Holy Ground
Not only am I anticipating good fellowship with brothers and sisters in the Lord, but I am looking forward to meeting and engaging with our neighbors and our other customers. We will be having a BBQ and refreshments. I am sure that there will be plenty of laughs, storytelling and hard negotiating. Well, maybe not-so-hard negotiating. But I am sure there will be some good-natured bantering back and forth. It wouldn’t be a Yard Sale without this kind of conversation.
I think if Jesus was walking the earth today, I think Yard Sales would be right up his alley. I think he would love a bargain and he would love the opportunity to talk and fellowship with people over a hot dog. I am praying that Jesus’ presence will be at work in and through his followers tomorrow. If this prayer is answered, tomorrow’s Yard Sale will be a huge success regardless of the money raised.
I am confident that we will accomplish all of our goals tomorrow. May the Lord bless our Yard Sale and may His face shine on all of the volunteers and customers. May the grounds of our Church tomorrow be truly holy ground and may our conversations be full of grace and good deals.
