I went to the mailbox today and found a $1,000 check for Center City Church. It was accompanied by a hand written note from another pastor in Charlotte. I was completely blown away. Speechless.
I sat in my car and stared into the distance for a while after I read this letter. He said that he was excited about Center City Church and wanted to let us know he loved us and was excited to unite with us to spread the Gospel. Wow. What an incredible example of generosity and unity.
I love the fact that God has brought together a group of like-minded pastors in the Charlotte area that do not view other churches as competition. We are all in this together, and God gets all the glory when we are unified. I’m blown away by the generosity of another pastor. And I’m inspired to do the same as other churches come to join arms with us as we spread the message of God’s love.
