Thank you to everyone who was a part of our gathering last night. It is a privilege to follow Christ with you.  We began the night by praying for our neighborhood while reflecting on the reason for the hope that we have. 

For Christ’s love compels us, because we are convinced that one died for all, and therefore all died. And he died for all that those who live should not longer live for themselves but for him who died for them and was raised again… All of this is from God, who reconciled us to himself through Christ and gave us the ministry of reconciliation: that God was reconciling the world to himself in Christ, not counting men’s sins against them. And he has committed to us the message of reconciliation. We are therefore Christ’s ambassadors, as though God were making his appeal through us…2 Corinthians 5:14-15 & 18-20

The Tryon Group put together this video… it expresses some key aspects of becoming a missional community. As I said last night, I really like the part where it talks about us each having a unique part to play in making beautiful music.

 

   

 Corey then led us through a reflection on the significance of becoming missional communities and connected us to the bigger story of God who consistently redeems.This led us into an excellent discussion that hopefully will help us to clarify and practically live out our call as home groups.Please post any thoughts, insights, suggestions, challenges that you took away from last night.I’ll start:I was challenged by the question, “What would the world look like if God answered your prayers?”
