God is waiting for us in the neighborhood!

Greetings Holy, Healthy and Happy People of God,

As I write this eNote to our faithful and devoted community of radical and contextually conscious followers of Jesus Christ, I’m excited about our next Worship Without Walls (WWW) action.  After our 10am worship experience this Sunday, we will become the tangible evidence of the heart, hands and feet of Jesus Christ.  Jesus offers to the church an invitation, “By this everyone will know that you are my disciples, if you love one another.”  John 13:35 NIV

By being the heart, hands and feet of Jesus, we are claiming our identity and leaving our mark in the community.  Sunday will be a time for us to show God’s beloved community that we care and are committed to working and witness so that transformation is evident.  Working together brings a sense of unity.

During a recent Clergy Spiritual Retreat, Bishop Ken Carter quoted Rule of Taize, “Make the unity of the body of Christ your passionate concern.”  When our concern is core to our faithful actions, the community embraces our efforts with love.  Disciples are known not by what they say, although important, nor by their thoughts, but rather by the unconditional love shared in the sight of our neighbors.  Here are three ways we can show our passionate concern.
