So – only about 72 hours remaining to finalize details, take care of those last minute crisis’ that always occur (speaking of which there is a five gallon bucket gathering some – I am sure – vital fluid draining from Black Betty our faithful actionchurch truck) AND set up an entire football field of equipment in preparation for Friday’s serving event – the ACS Relay for Life.
Amidst the rush and crunch of panic time, as we all scurry around to get two weeks-worth of work into the remaining three days, I just wanted to take a minute (thus the shortest blog EVER!) to remind everyone why we do what we do every year.
THREE: Because we 1) Love God, 2) Love people and 3) Take action. In that specific order. Our t-shirts even say so.
TWO: Cancer survivors AND their caregivers. Hands down – some of the bravest, most inspiring people on the planet!
ONE: One day filled with hope, love, joy and laughter (and exhaustion). A day to form bonds, friendships and memories that will last forever. A day to forget about the pain and suffering of this world. A day to show the hope we have in Christ.
“…In this world you will have trouble. But take heart! I have overcome the world.” (NIV John 16:33)
