Building Bridges In North Paulding

If it has been a while since you traveled out Harmony Grove Church Rd. up here around the crossroads, you've missed a few changes. The first and foremost is the clearing of the land around the one lane bridge as the Paulding DOT prepares to build our new two lane bridge. Our county continues to work hard to meet the growing demands of our growing population.

What is more, new networks are forming with groups like the Crossroads Business Association and other groups to help "build bridges." Incredible resourcing is available when people begin working together. Did you know that Dane Ellison of Southern Star Business Advisors is in our community? I didn't either until he spoke at last months CBA meeting and provided us with some great insight. H/T to Rick at the H.O.M.E. Store at Seven Hills.

Building bridges is important to our church as well. Consider how much teachers do for our kids and in return, our families. That is why the launch team at Crossroads UMC got together and did our Love Our Teachers! Project on Valentines Day.

Jesus challenged his listeners that, "You are the salt of the earth, but if salt has lost its taste, how shall its saltiness be restored? It is no longer good for anything except to be thrown out and trampled under people's feet...let your light shine before others, so that they may see your good works and give glory to your Father who is in heaven. (Matthew 5:13 & 16 ESV)

May I Ask: Are you intentional about being salt and light? What have you have found helpful in building bridges?

May I Suggest: Start with simple things, join the local Chamber of Commerce or get some gifts for teachers. What ideas do you have? Share them here!
