Worship in Action

It is not an easy task to find ways to raise funds. It can seem very boring for friends and family to be constantly bombarded with requests, especially when they have already been very generous. With the support of Creative Spirit Studio   we had a evening of pottery painting.

Our trip is now less then 3 Months away. God is speaking to us of finding ways to deal with change. This weekend I will be preaching on the words of Paul, in his letter to the Colossians,

Whatever you do, in word or deed, do everything in the name of the Lord Jesus, giving thanks to God the Father through him.

I believe that our trip is all about using our time and talents to worship through action. The poet and priest George Herbert famously wrote,

who sweeps a room,as for thy laws,

makes that and the action fine.

I believe that to call Jesus Lord is an invitation for us to reach out to the whole of creation in his name.

Getting ready

We are gathering our thoughts, prayers and our things ready for the big adventure. 3 months in the Dominican Republic will be a steep learning curve full of excitement and challenges. Watch this space as we discover what God has planned for us and for those with whom we will be working.
