Working in a foreign world

Why is it that sometimes I feel like I work in a foreign church in a familiar world? I would not be surprised by quick responses about how we should be “in the world but not of it.” Now, what really does that mean? We were created by God who created the world that we live in. It makes sense to me that we would be in the world that God created and be a part of changing it.

I’ve been a part of the church for over 13 years and working in the church off and on for seven years. Sometimes I feel like such an outsider. My title doesn’t fit right. My work seems like it is so backwards. I give announcements and carry on friendly conversation but life does not change. My role does not seem significant.

My hope is that there is so much yet to do in this world. God is not done with us. He is working on us. Will we respond? Will I respond?
