Our family has been forced to make some hard decisions lately. Our kids love sports and often want to play more than one sport at a time. This Fall, Andrew was running cross country and playing soccer. And Delia played soccer, too. This Winter, the kids really want to do both swim and basketball. As we lined up schedules and distances to practice, as well as meets and games, it’s just not in the cards. We need a lot more hours in a day to make that work. So, we started talking about what’s most important. We asked each kid, “what takes priority?” It’s looking like swim (my kids’ true love) is going to beat out basketball (my true love).  

It feels like this Fall everything is back in full swing. The many obligations that were cancelled and put on hold when COVID first hit are ramping back up again. This includes church activities. Along with this, I think many of us have reflected on what’s most important in our lives this past year-plus.

And so, I wonder, what are your priorities? What are you ready to pour yourself into? What are you ready to give up? As you reflect on this, I would ask you to consider what your priorities are at Peace? What is most important to you? What are you willing to pour yourself into at Peace? 

Then let me know, because I truly believe God uses us best when we work out of our strengths. I’d love to hear where you’re hearing God call you next. Drop me a note!

Have a blessed week,

Pastor Dawn
