Did you know that you’re writing a story? You write a few pages every day…by the choices you make…and the characters you meet. God is writing an even bigger story. And your story is part of it. You only get one shot at this thing called life. You can live it for yourself…or you can serve others. You have no idea how long you’ll have to write your story. All that you have—your loves, your talents, your recourses, your opportunities—is from God, and he’s concerned with how you’ll use these to extend his grace to others.
Life consists of our
* Loves—passions, purpose, priorities, and values
* Intersections—how we connect with others’ stories
* Fortunes—recourses to help others write new endings to their stories
* Eternity—making a difference beyond life here on earth
For a month now we have been examining the foundation and direction of our church as we have learned how to become more of an externally focused church. Beginning Sunday, March 15, we will begin to explore how serving others creates opportunities for our stories to intersect others’ stories—and for lives to be changed forever.
Join us for part two of becoming an externally focused church. This part of the journey is called “Living a Life on Loan.” For online friends in other places, teaching on this subject is available at relaxedchurch.com under the online audio messages link.
