While altering a National Weather Service hurricane map is . . . not cool, . . . the incident did get me thinking about how useful it could be in our ministry settings if we could, in fact, alter reality with a Sharpie. So here are some Sharpie edits you could make to enhance your ministry:
When you want to take Saturday off but don’t get your sermon finished by Friday night.
When you need a quick addition (or two) added on to your building:
When you forget the communion elements:
If you don’t want to buy the over-priced coffee when you go out with the women’s coffee group:
When people aren’t contributing quite enough money:
When you want a few more people to hear the fabulous sermon you have prepared:
When you don’t have time to make anything for the potluck (because you were writing a fabulous sermon):
When you need a microphone (so everyone can hear your fabulous sermon):
Rev. Joanna Harader serves as pastor of Peace Mennonite Church in Lawrence, Kansas, where all the Sharpies are kept safely in the administrative assistant’s office. Her blog is SpaciousFaith.com.
