Sept. 4, the weekend following hurricane Katrina. Worship was
underway in the Columbia City Church of the Brethren. a small
Northern Indiana congregation. The worship leader was ready to
begin, but before that could happen, three youth came forward.
junior and senior high youth have decided to donate money to the
hurricane relief fund," three seventh grade girls of that
church announced. They then challenged the rest of the congregation
to match their $1,000, which came from money raised for next year’s
National Youth Conference, a Junior High work camp, and other
upcoming "fun" events.
How did that church
respond to the challenge of their youth? What do you think?
Fascinating things happen, you know, when God’s children put their
hands together to do what they hear the Lord calling them to do. How
about you? How are you responding?

Many hands have touched these plates,
O Lord. Some calloused and tough, others soft and tender. Some large, others
small. We bring before you the work of these hands. In such giving we seek to be
your hands, your body, your church. Bless, O Lord, the work of our hands toward
your greater work. We pray in the name of the One who, with two hands such as
ours, broke and shared the bread of life. Amen.
