Keeping in Touch!
I am thrilled that both our local and online Bonhoeffer Projects are now full. We begin by forming the communities on January 22 and the online version in early February. I plan to be spending a good deal of time with these men and women in 2015.
Spiritual leaders all, will be confronted with simple questions: do we follow Jesus because we have religious jobs or because he compels us from within? Discipleship is a life of following someone else, so are we leading others and to where?
Those who reproduce and multiply do so from a base of spiritual fire, a fire that burns and that won’t go out. It is much more than talking. It is taking people by the hand and leading them.
We would ask for your prayers as we begin a process that we pray will multiply and offer interested leaders a means of becoming disciple makers. Our calling as leaders is to teach by word and to teach by life what Jesus has called us to: world revolution.
We cannot do what God alone can do, but we do play a part in the redemptive drama. So, first we seek not to speak, we seek to have something to say. We ask God to make us desperate to have authentic lives into which we can invite others. I plan to pass along some good stories of God working among us this year.
