Ministers R Us

I read something this morning that was a good reminder for me. The book was talking about how God uses even those we can't fathom him using--the lady impatiently honking at the elderly man in the Target parking lot, the surly telephone solicitor, the bossy lunch lady, the kids teasing on the playground. We tend to look for signs of godliness in kindness, peace, love, acceptance, and respect--those, after all, are God qualities. But God is not limited to our perception of him or our expectations of others, thank goodness, and we know he often works in the darkest places to bring his transforming light.
