Small Things Matter - Our small acts, God’s big plans 


Small things add up.  From remembering a birthday, to asking about an exam, through the small acts of everyday ministry, God’s big things are accomplished. Small things matter. To God. To them. 


“We have a big God that acts through small things. Grains of sand make a beach. A small stone takes down a giant. A few short letters to small churches influence the world. A small baby changes eternity. 


So we show up for a youth group of three.  We go to their game even though they sit on the bench. We send a text to say “hi.” We pray for one teen every day.


I hope to see you all at QB as we are reminded and inspired by how the small acts of kindness and love we show our youth are the very things God uses to accomplish his big plans in and through their lives.”

Pastoring with her husband Tim, and parent to their son Bohdan, Lindy enjoys poetry, photography, and exploring the Karori outdoors with her dog Zoe.  One of her favourite things about church is that it is like a big extended family, and what she loves most about Jesus is the way he embodies God's justice and grace.
