Team and Individual Membership.
March 20, 2008
At home we are generally wholly, and holy, self sufficient; some of us in small comfortable groups, some of us alone.
As a team, we are thrust into co-dependency on a larger level than just our relationship with GOD. We are dependent also on each others' relationship with him.
One of the most amazing aspects of a Get In The Car Team is each individual's ability to stand alone and every individual's respect of that. That does not mean when someone wanders off, that they are easily let go. The very nature of any GOD centered team is to grab out and bring members back in, even closer. However, this GITC team is different. The fingers of the team-body are always reaching out brushing the air around us, checking on those who may stand aside for a moment or two, and acknowledging the need for individual time with the LORD.
Sometimes we are questioning. Sometimes we are asking. Sometimes we are giving thanks. At all times though, we are still attached to the tentacles of the team. We have just been suction-cupped to the ends of them; given enough space to dangle, twist, turn, redirect and seek out the sun.
For those of you who are here in Slidell, I hope you continue to stand alone as needed, but always believe and know that you are part of an unbreakable team that will never let you go.
For those of you reading this, that are not physically here in Louisiana, please be assured that you are still very much attached to us. This is not a small team of 14 mission volunteers. We have carried you here in our hearts appreciating your support and sacrifices, so that we may serve.
