A Shot of Hope

There I was, sitting in church during the missions moment, when it dawned on me:

I see only women up front. 

Yep, from my vantage point, I could count 5 women, the missions pastor, two worship team members and then two on banners. I thought, “this is what I want my kids to see.”

And so I snapped a picture:

For the record, a man preached on Sunday, and another man lead worship.

But this picture represents a moment of hope for me. Because it shows women in leadership. And because it articulates a vision for partnership between men and women.

“Lord, get us to the point where pictures like this become normal in our congregations! Amen.”
