Yoder Popcorn Mystery
Along with a generous check and a few other thoughtful gifts for Pastor's Appreciation month, I discovered a large open box filled with caramel corn and unpopped Yoder popcorn in the office last Sunday morning. Tucked in the top was a really kind note saying "You are appreciated!" And do you know what? I felt appreciated.
But after digging through the contents there was no name attached to the gift. Somebody out there just sent me a one-way smile and a gift of love. I will share my popcorn with anyone providing a clue that leads to the arrest and conviction of this mystery gift giver!
One privilege of serving South Side Church as your pastor has been sharing your gifts of love each and every week. It's an even bigger blessing to witness you sharing it with each other and with people beyond this family of believers. There is no mystery in those gifts. No matter how undeserving I am to receive your kindness, I hope to serve you simply because Christ has given his life for me and His love is something amazing to be shared with others. Hopefully that is not a mystery to you, either.
"I have become [the church's] servant by the
commission God gave me to present to you the word of
God in its fullness— the mystery that has been kept hidden
for ages and generations, but is now disclosed to the
Lord’s people. To them God has chosen to make
known among the Gentiles the glorious riches of this mystery,
which is Christ in you, the hope of glory."
Colossians 1:25-27 NIV
With His love and my appreciation, Pastor Keith
