My Stephen Ministry Story :: By Kathy Campbell Mazi

Many years ago, as I sat in the sanctuary waiting for morning worship to begin, I opened the Sunday bulletin and read this quote:  “In life as in dance, grace glides on blistered feet.”  These words invaded my soul.  I realized that ALL my life, I have been gliding on God’s grace. 

My life is a story of faith and blisters.When my life as I knew it changed dramatically several years ago, when I was shaken to my core and felt like I was sinking in quicksand, I was buoyed by God’s grace. And what did His grace look like?  My Second Baptist Church family was the presence of Christ during those dark days.  Their acts of service and words of comfort and wisdom carried me through this time of loneliness and despair. 

Many gifts of support came my way, but the greatest gift I received was the help of a Stephen Minister.  She walked along beside me with empathy and understanding.  

 As my heart has healed over the past 10 years, I have had numerous opportunities to help others heal from similar pain.  Recently I was commissioned as a Stephen Minister.  God is using my blisters to share His grace with others.  

 Thank you, Second Baptist Church, for supporting the Stephen Ministry.  It is making a difference in many lives!
