hey guys...just a reminder about what we learned about at choir camp. Remember the feather. What happened when you blew on it? So much of nature responds by "giving" - leaves rustle, stems bow, branches move however the wind directs. They don't all respond in the same way, but they are all affected by the wind. Just as nature responds in different ways to the wind, we are all asked to use our unique spiritual gifts to do different things as a response to the power of God's spirit in our lives. We should all respond to God by giving in to His direction for us. Our gifts may be different, but they all come from the same God. What is your response to the gift God has given you?

Remember the games we played...
"Best Gift" charades: What is the best gift you've ever received? How did that make you feel? How do you think the giver of that gift felt? Or more importantly, what if you did not use the gift given to you? God gives us unique spiritual gifts and we should use them, not hide them!!
Puzzle Relay Race: Each of us are like pieces of a puzzle. No two individuals are alike, no one is better than anyone else, and most importantly, all the pieces are needed to complete the puzzle. We each contribute our own unique gifts to this choir and together we complete the body of Christ.
The Ripple Effect: Remember how we wrote down our spiritual gifts on a piece of paper and dropped it into the water? What happened? The water began to ripple, spreading further and further...until it affected the whole pool of water. We should use our spiritual gifts in the same way, affecting everyone we come into contact with.
A Challenge For You...
i know a lot of us are still wondering about what our spiritual gift may be. Pray about it and ask God to help you discover what your gift may be. Listen carefully, God often speaks in a whisper.
