Gotta talk with your people.
Gotta talk with God about your people.
Because in a curious turn of events, they have elected to be with you
Because God helped them see what He was doing in, around, and through you.
And they agreed in their hearts to respond to God’s prompt and they are with you
So give thanks to God for your people
And let the people know how grateful you are God led them to be with you
And listen to your people because the Lord is at work in their lives
And listen to the Lord because He loves your people
Because they are a gift entrusted to you in this missional adventure
Because they have joined in God’s mission with you
Because they belong to God and nothing in all of creation can separate them from the Love of God that is in Christ Jesus our Lord.
Give thanks and go talk with your precious people.
