A Word From Pastor Jaime
The Rewards of Teamwork
Once my very first season of organized baseball came to an end at the ripe age of 6, something became very apparent to me: I would never be a professional baseball player. I enjoyed everything about the game. I loved watching the game on television. I loved cheering for other as they played. I loved baseball cards and traded them with friends for a long time. I loved Reggie Jackson. I cherished learning about Roberto Clemente. I just wasn’t good enough to play beyond Little League. Yet, as I have looked back, there are many lessons gleaned from baseball that helped build me for life as a follower of Christ. Among other lessons, I learned to be a part of a team. I understood that regardless of talent level—or lack thereof—we needed one another to win games. I gathered that clean-up hitters were as important as good pitchers. So…no time wasted during my very brief career!
Today, I am glad to be a part of a body. I am thankful for the fact that my journey of faith is personal but not solitary. God in His mercy has taught and modeled what it means to labor together for the sake of the Kingdom. In essence, there are amazing rewards in teamwork, and this is one of the reasons why teamwork is a core value of St. John’s. We are a lot stronger and can accomplish lots more for God as a team. You have heard me say this before: The Lone Ranger was just that…lone! In fact, the author of the book of Ecclesiastes expressed, “A person standing alone can be attacked and defeated, but two can stand back-to-back and conquer. Three are even better, for a triple-braided cord is not easily broken.” (4:12, NLT)
For Christmas this year we will be teaming up with Children First of Sarasota with the goal of blessing many families with the love of Christ for the Season. Furthermore, we will also seek to help a number of needy families in our community for Thanksgiving. Stay tuned!
Join us on Sunday as we continue our series titled In Response. Together, we will be looking at ways we can respond to God’s grace and mercy. May God continue to bless you and yours beyond measure! We go on,
Serving All. Following One,
