This has been a great week. We had a great weekend between RISE on Good Friday, Divine Dining assembly and delivery on Saturday and then Easter Sunday!
I've been helping develop our next sermon series which is going to be called ReTHINK Church. Can't tell you how excited I am for this and what it will invite us into as the people of God. The premise is that we reclaim 7 of the images that are in scripture that describe the church. When we've had corrective lenses on how we see the church, it will inform how we 'do church' from here on out. This is a great series to invite friends who are sour towards the church but are intrigued by what it could be.
The part that really has me excited is the movement we are calling "Operation: Sheep Initiative". If things pan out, we will have tangible ways to meet all 6 of the action items found in Matthew 25:31-46. More to come on this...but I love the potential of shifting to a better understanding of church...more verb than noun...more proactive than responsive...more vibrant than sleepy.
