This week we discussed 2 Corinthians 5:14-21 to establish the following:
Our motivation as the love of Christ, our identity as ambassadors, and our call to create reconciling communities.
You can see the Powerpoint we worked through below:
This is a summary of some of our ideas and a first pass at a process for how we might begin reconciling communities.
Last Wednesday we spent time praying for specific individuals in our families, neighborhoods, places of work, and “3rd places”. We also spent time writing our stories about a time in our lives when Jesus brought healing to our lives amidst wounds or trauma. We thought through and discussed how “our wounds are the grounds of our witness” – thinking about how our wounds have shown the great power of Jesus.
Please look through what we discussed as well as some of those we were able to pray for!
