We’ve got our leaders learning community this weekend, I’m excited because they are always good!
H and I are doing bits of final preparation today. As I prayed this morning 2 bits from the lectionary readings struck me –
Ephesians 3:10 talks about a church that displays God’s wisdom. That’s the goal! That’s one of the main reasons we do missional communities and all the training events.
Psalm 107 has a repeated refrain: “they cried out to the Lord and he delivered them…”. God’s wisdom, God’s glory is so often displayed by turning back to him. By changing minds, and living differently.
I’m hopeful that the learning community tonight and tommorrow will give lots of opportunity for our communities, and for the churches joining in with us, to turn to God, to change minds, to stretch into new ways of living. Then maybe we’ll better display God’s wisdom so that even more people will realise they can cry out to him in their distress and experience his rescue.
