  • Mentors can face greatest fears too

    No few people live on the cusp of becoming a mentor through Big Brothers Big Sisters of Carroll County. The benefits are obvious, the need even more obvious, but still people hold back. I think I know why.

    The great fear out there is finding yourself with a child who asks too much of you. I mean that in the sense of a Little Brother or Sister that needs what you cannot give in discipline or direction. There is un-doubtedly a belief among some that the children in the program bring extensive challenges to the adults who mentor them.

  • Jesus can break through in those ‘cold’ moments

    When it comes to serving at my church, I have two jobs. As I’ve mentioned before, I’m a communion server. I’m also emcee for the monthly senior ministry events, dinners and such. With a microphone in hand I quiet them down, tell a few senior-related jokes, dismiss the people at the tables to go get their food and introduce featured guests.

    Sometimes I refill cups of iced tea or clear plates away.

    Basically, I just show up and try not to mess things up so badly that God can’t fix it.
