I was going through old notes from sermons a few months ago. Pastor Vicky was talking about how we can use our gifts and abilities to change our world and make it better. Here is what I wrote down as to the statements she made:
‘The church has always been known as the disrupters - you put a few of us in the community and there will be a disruption- just like yeast- it is known as a force, bringing transformation and a change to the community conditions and the condition of the heart.’
WOAH!!!! Challenge up and set. I remember feeling a big sense of excitement when she said these words. It was a call to arms in a way.
We really are in a unique spot right now. Our world is so fast-paced, but people really are searching for something REAL. We have it! What can we do to disrupt our current status quo in our little town? We will be talking about how we can care for our neighbor in the coming months. It is time to get moving in a real and effective way. I’m excited to see what God can do with a few willing hearts!
