History was made at our church on Sunday--and I was a part! Before I tell you, let me give you a little background...
Our church is realllly traditional
(It was a pretty big deal when my Mom became one of our preachers year ago)
Some of our church members don't have ANY problem with sharing their opinions
We DO have a contemporary service, that's so far, going really well (started in Oct)
With that being said, my friend Rachel and I were USHERS in church on Sunday!!
It's a huge deal that we had women ushers at our traditional service--it's been brought up before in meetings, and there have been arguments after arguments on the subject. I guess people just think that only men should be ushers for some reason.
Rachel and I were asked to usher on Saturday, and of course we said yes!! And then, we started thinking--this is going to cause so much trouble! We're both staff children--is that going to make things better, or worse? We were going crazy...but, after church on Sunday, we got a few strange looks, and a bunch of smiles!
I'm so grateful for the opportunity, and I'm sincerely hoping that this will begin to change things for our church!
