A post worth checking out

23May05

Russell (my neighbor and pastor of covenant-first presby downtown) keeps putting out great posts. Check out the one from today called “Designer Faith” (not what you’d expect).

I was pleased to have lunch with Russell today. My strong sense is that God has cool stuff in store for him and his church. Not sure the shape of it, but it feels ….. right and good.

“The church isn’t an organization to be marketed – it is the congregation of the people of God – people who have responded to the inner call of the Holy Spirit to come and worship Jesus Christ as King. You don’t market that – you don’t manufacture that – you simply live it.

That said, I think it equally wrong that we ignore design and intentionality. God gave us a multiplicity of gifts, talents and skills. God called us together as a people, and God intends to use us for the advancement of his kingdom.”
