Donna Brady - Business Administrator

This past July, Michel Tomlinson and I were able to summit Mt Kilimanjaro! I have never had a time and space in my life like the one I had this summer. This wife, mom, grandma, Business Administrator at SRC, World Vision ‘ambassador’, got to spend 6 days climbing the tallest free standing mountain on our planet and see the view from Uhuru (Swahili for FREEDOM) Peak. God met me up there. I sort of came undone on that summit! While our team sang Amazing Grace, God’s Spirit flooded my spirit and showed me things I’ve held on to for decades that He wanted me to release under his banner of freedom and grace! “It is for freedom that Christ has set us free. Stand firm, then, and do not let yourselves be burdened again by a yoke of slavery.” Gal 5:1

Jack Crabtree - Teaching Pastor

A good relationship in marriages or with friends is a lot like gardening—pulling weeds and planting seeds. A beautiful, fruitful garden is hard work. Weeds are your #1 enemy. They are relentless and take over if you get distracted or lazy. Your best defense is constant attention and immediate action when they pop up. In our relationships the weeds of selfishness, busyness, and fear are always threats to choke out love, self-sacrifice, forgiveness, and unity.

What is growing in the garden of your most important relationships? Ask yourself with each word you speak and action you take. Am I planting weeds or seeds? Be intentional. Pull the weeds of selfishness by confessing mistakes and asking forgiveness. Ask God to help you plant seeds that will produce the fruit of the Spirit—love, joy, peace, patience, kindness, goodness, faithfulness, gentleness and self-control.
