Shouldering The Load

Yesterday, I called a colleague to ask him if he could fill in for me at an upcoming meeting that I am unable to attend. We spoke for a while about what each of us had been up to, and I mentioned that Elizabeth and I had recently served on a Cursillo staff together. “How was that?” he asked, having been to Cursillo as a pilgrim but not yet had the opportunity to serve on staff. “It was great!” I quickly replied. “It is one of the few ways that Elizabeth and I get to share ministry. Usually, I am up front in church while she is sitting in the back with our kids, or she is downstairs teaching Sunday school while I am upstairs leading a class. For once, we were able to do something together in the church, and I loved it.”
