Safety Nets - More Harm than Good?

A year or so ago we were fortunate enough to witness the Flying Wallendas performing one of their tight rope walking feats at Silver Dollar City in Branson, Missouri. Nick Wallenda has recently got a lot of publicity in Central Florida as he walked across the Orlando Eye! He has also recently gained notoriety as he walked across Niagara Falls, live on ABC. 

The Wallenda family has been engaged in these high risk, circus type acts for many generations. In fact, as we saw them perform, the 6th, 7th and 8th generations were involved in the death defying stunts. In their show, stunts included cycling forward and backward, and carrying numerous objects and people along a thin rope about 30 feet in the air. 

A Bigger Perspective

The second book in C.S. Lewis' "Chronicles of Narnia" series is called "Prince Caspian". In the story, it has been a long time since Lucy has seen Aslan - the lion who symbolically represents the Christ figure. The story paints a picture of her gazing longingly and lovingly into his powerful eyes. She notices that he looks different from their previous encounters. His size surprises her as they enter into the following conversation -

"Aslan," said Lucy. "You're bigger". 

Your Church, Your Place

A church is built by people like you. People with unique gifts and talents whom God is calling to make a difference. Our focus as a church is to make a difference in the world and marketplace, but there are ways that you can help build the church to exponentially make this happen. Please look at some of our service opportunities below and contact us (This email address is being protected from spambots. You need JavaScript enabled to view it.) if you'd like to serve with us.

The Nudge

Have you ever had one? You should. They are often hard to receive, but a sign that you are seeking to walk in the will of God. Some Christians call them a ‘burden’, a holy discontent or a "prompting". Whatever we call them, they are moments when we hear God clearly, though rarely audibly, and you just know that we have to do something. Scripture is full of people who became heroes in the faith because they responded to “the nudge”.

 

The following blog is NOT a call to get involved in a cause that I am becoming passionate about (although I am sure I’ll be making some asks soon!). I want to share with you a part of the process that God has been working in me as I have experienced “Holy Nudges”. I do so in the hope that Jesus would nudge you as well, because if we all get "nudged", we’ll all start making more of a difference! And if we all start to make a difference we can make the world a better place. Perhaps these points will help you receive and identify your "nudge"?
