Discovering the starting point of margin.


Have you ever received a gift and you weren’t sure exactly what it was or what it was for?

I remember years ago being given a group of gifts; when I opened the first one I had no idea what it was or why it was given to me.  Seeing the perplexed look on my face the gift giver said, “It’s part of a theme gift. You’ll understand after you open the others.” Sure enough, after I’d opened the other gifts I understood what was going on.

This past weekend we began a new series all about margin (if you were away you can catch up online at  Margin is a lot like a gift that you aren’t sure what to do with.  It’s often easy to recognize that you need margin, but how exactly do you begin finding margin in your life?

Margin is an amazing gift and this weekend in part two of our series we are going to explore the starting point to discovering margin in our lives.  I hope you’ll be with us this Sunday as we begin unwrapping the gift of margin that God has given us.

See you Sunday,

Pastor Kirk
