Nobody is a whole team. Each one is a player. But take away one player and the game is forfeited.
Nobody is a whole orchestra. Each one is a musician. But take away one musician and the symphony is incomplete.
Nobody is a whole play. Each one is an actor. But take away one actor and the performance suffers.
Nobody is a whole hospital. Each one is part of the staff. But take away one person and it isn't long before the patient can tell.
Cars are comprised of numerous parts. Each one is connected to and dependent upon the other. Even a tiny screw, if it comes loose and falls out of the carburetor, can bring the whole vehicle to a stop.
You guessed it. We need one another. You need someone and someone needs you.
To make this thing called life work, we gotta lean and support. And relate and respond. And give and take. And confess and forgive. And reach out and embrace. And release and rely.
Especially in God's family.....where the "One Another" of the New Testament should be a part of every church's standard operating procedures manual. For the church, love and acceptance are not optional luxuries. Neither is tolerance. Or understanding. Or patience. You know, all those things you need from others when your humanity crowds out your divinity.
Since none of us is a whole, independent, self-sufficient, super-capable, all-powerful human, let's quit acting like we are.
Join us this Sunday as we kick-off a brand-new series at 9:15am titled, "One Another". Each week we will focus our attention on one of the key characteristics that not only sets us apart from the world, but is vital if we desire to have a "Jesus" influence in our community.
During our 10:30am service, we will be looking at the essentials of a healthy marriage and how trusting Jesus is vital to married life.
Finally, our Room 4 Hope ministry is one way we come together to provide hope to those who have been affected by homelessness.
Starting Sunday, Parkside Fellowship will become a safe, temporary “home” for families in our community.
To learn more or to volunteer, simply write “HOPE” on your connection card or reply to this email and we will contact you.
Hope to see you Sunday!
Doug Boyd - Sr. Pastor
