Last Saturday Jeff, John and Jarrod served all day at church. They have servant hearts. They are hard workers. This is their passion I think: serving where the work is, where it's hard, where it takes effort.
I love this about all three of them. They just don't shy away from the hard, from the work, from what will take time. Instead, they meet it head on. This day was not a wasteful day to them. They accomplished so much.
They tore down Bethlehem.
It was supposed to be a one-day project and they (along with the other servant-hearted, like minded people) made it happen. Bethlehem was the set, a mini-town fashioned in the likes of the actually Bethlehem of old that our church created (and in fact Jeff helped build) for our annual, bi-annual sometimes, production of the Journey that our church puts on about the birth of Christ. This set is old. It was built in 2003 for the first production of the Journey in our churches' new building, on our churches' new property. And like I said, Jeff was there to help build Bethlehem. It is very fitting that he was there to help tear it down and the boys by his side.
But, the Journey isn't over.
Plans are being made for a new Bethlehem to be built. And for the Journey to continue.
