Day 20: Into the home stretch
Nearly three straight weeks of writing every day. Wow, wasn’t sure if I’d make it this far. I still have 10 posts to write, but I’m already thinking about what I want to do next. I’ve learned to create the space to do this post, so I shouldn’t let it go.
So, what to do next? I’m thinking about working out some of the discipleship concepts I learned from Ken Hall and enrich them some. I really think the ancient traditions work much better with discipleship than the much drier modern methods.
I am strongly of the opinion that our individualism seriously undermined the church. The pendulum swung from the community defining your existence to the individual defining it. I think the healthy balance is between the two.
Like being called to ministry. You must be convinced of the call and the church needs to discern. We need to rebuild the community that has been torn down. And it begins with each believer. We must be integrated into the body. The gifts God has given us are for the benefit of the body. We aren’t an organization that has leaders and followers. We are all priests. We’re are all in the Royal Priesthood. But we each have distinct gifts, for building up the body.
So I probably need some pencil and paper. This may be some work. Maybe a little strategic planning initially. I hope I don’t prove myself a liar.
Soli Deo Gloria
