Leading beyond our Walls - Dental practice to impacts a community for Christ

Open wide. That's what Dr. Mac McDonald says when someone sits in his chair, but this day, open wide is what he and several other dental professionals did to change the lives and smiles of hundreds.

328 patients served. Dozens of dentists, hygenists and volunteers and $250,000 of free dental services.

A day of dentistry. A day of poetry. Ephesians 2:10 declares we've not just been saved from our sins (Eph 2:8-9), but we've been saved for signifcant work God has for each of us. Paul writes, "For we are his workmanship, created in Christ Jesus for good works, that He prepared beforehand that we should walk in them." As one volunteer commented, this was an experience in good works, "As I hustled from room to room, I couldn't help but tear up a few minutes as I felt God's amazing love and grace was truly at work!"

Many Christians don't sense what rhyme or reason worship days have with work days -- nor how their faith interfaces with the rhythms of their day-to-day. On this day the McDonalds and others traded-in an "ordinary" days' worth of their skills, time and pay to make an extraordinary and eternal difference.

This is what the Kingdom needs, right? People using their gifts for Christ. Thanks for this story. I'm featuring it in the High Calling Blogs newsletter that goes out this week.
