Working with Experts in the Church

Paul reminds us in Romans 12, and 1 Corinthians 12 that God blesses churches with people of different gifts, in order to bless the whole church. I spent the time today working with an expert in our church. It was a long hard day of laboring on the church porch pillars, with a masonry expert, with more than 50 years of experience. It was great watching him with his pallet and trowl. His passion for what he has been doing so long. His gift will bless our church with some needed repair, while giving him joy in giving to others.

I love to watch experts, and those training in their talents. When is the last time you were able to help others serve in your church. Bless others with opportunity, especially in the church. Who knows you may learn some new things.

-- Keep on your journey with Jesus today.

Daniel,
I know that this is not exactly the purpose of this link/blog... but I was wondering if you were the Dan Shipton that graduated from La Porte High School in 1968? AND if you are related to the George Elmer Shipton family from La Porte. He was my grandfather's (William Henry Shipton) brother. If so, I would be interested in sharing information.

Thank you,
Dave

I am not the same Daniel. However, my father was born in Laporte, IN. I do have relatives there, at least second cousins.
