This is What We Are About

We plant seeds that one day will grow.
We water seeds already planted,
Knowing that they hold future promise.

We lay foundations
That need further development.
We provide yeast that produces effects
Beyond our capabilities.

We cannot do everything
And there is a sense of liberation
In realizing that.
This enables us to do something
And to do it very well.
It may be incomplete, but it is a beginning,
A step along the way,
An opportunity for God’s grace
To enter and do the rest.

We may never see the end results
But that is the difference
Between the master builder and the worker.
We are the workers, not master builders,
Ministers, not messiahs.
We are prophets
Of a future not our own.

-Ken Untener
