Cover Indiana thru Habitat

One of the blessings my church bestows on its ministers at Southport is the gift of a week away in mission. Everyone should do it! This year I chose to reflect back to my 2009 sabbatical and join the Cover Indiana Bicycle Ride for Habitat for Humanity. Riding with approximately 75 other Habitat enthusiasts, we road from Lafayette to Crawfordsville, Terre Haute, Linton, Bedford, Ellettsville, Plainfield and home to Indianapolis, together raising almost $80,000 for Habitat affiliates statewide. I was so proud to participate in this experience because of what we saw Habitat affiliates doing across the state- the mentoring, the training, the outpouring of love in some really small communities. It is great to see that Habitat is such a thriving ministry in such diverse places!

Someone once said that many people act as if Jesus had taught that the first and greatest commandment was “Thou shalt go to church.” And the second one like it, “Thou shalt try to get others to go to church.” I am so excited by how we at Southport Christian are reclaiming Christ’s teaching about love, and putting faith into action, by allowing people the space to incorporate who they are into how Jesus wants the world to be. Thank you for the time to do this and thanks to my sponsors for helping me raise almost $1000 for Habitat for Humanity!

More on this adventure to come!
