What do those words do to you? What ideas or possible actions do they conjure up?
Moving over so that someone can share the sofa with you. Opening a circle to include someone who has arrived late. Welcoming someone who is new to the community. Adjusting your calendar to allow added time for something that hasn’t been a priority before.
All of these are examples of making room. This coming year at NDPC, both in worship and in our education programs, we will be exploring various ways that we are invited to make room as people of faith:
- making room for newcomers to the community
- making room for new ideas to interact with long-cherished beliefs
- making room for new commitments of time and energy
- making room within ourselves for the Spirit to move and engage us
Stay tuned for more details on how this theme will work its way into our church life. In the meantime, take this phrase into your own life. Hold it and consider it in your prayer life. What does it mean to you? What might you need to make room for right now?
