Need a Shower?

I spent my week meditating on this text:

Be very careful, then, how you live—not as unwise but as wise, making the most of every opportunity, because the days are evil. Therefore do not be foolish, but understand what the Lord’s will is. (Ephesians 5:17-19, NIV)

What does it mean to make the most of every opportunity? I'm talking about that today at PCC. Really looking forward to sharing what God spoke into my life through the Bible.

But there is a practical application. We have an opportunity to make an offer, and we're going to do just that. With tens of thousands of people around us without power, we are opening the doors of the Powhatan Campus today. We have a men's shower and a women's shower. We have electricity, running water and hot water. We will be here, at the Powhatan Campus today from now through 7pm. Anyone is welcome to come and clean up, take a shower, even lounge around and enjoy some A/C.

If you'd like to come or let someone else know about it, you don't need to call. Just come. I don't suspect many will come, but you do need to know that we only have one shower for me and one for women, so it's possible that there may be a wait.

Spread the word. Make the most of every opportunity.
