Is Richmond Important to God?

Take a listen…and see how God answers this question as He speaks through Tim Keller.  You know….there is nothing else I can say or add to this video at this time.  I probably need to listen to it about 100 more times to fully comprehend what God is saying to me through Tim Keller during this short (about 17 minutes) video.  Thankfully there is a related white paper for the Lausanne Movement in Cape Town 2010 available here. As I head out to the hair salon in a couple of minutes, I will take the paper version to read, re-read and highlight.  And pray expectantly…that I hear more from the Lord as I do.

‘This is Discipling’

Some of you have asked….what is a Missional Community and what do you do?

Every Thursday at 6pm, a group of us (mainly from the Northside of RVA) get together in our home.  What do we do?  We fellowship (which basically means talk and eat great food together),  We study God’s Word (also known as the Bible) and pray (talk to God).  We live out God’s mission together (which means we encourage each other to love God more and to love our neighbors) in our everyday lives in our community, at work, at the gym, at the barber shop….wherever we spend our day.  It isn’t project based.  It’s just life.

Weekly, we also have Kids Missional Community, where we do the same thing, but for neighborhood kids.

I recently found this video online and thot I would share it because it describes beautifully what we are doing.  This is the way we roll….in Southern Barton Heights and beyond. If you want to be a part or learn more, feel free to contact me!
