9/4: Quilting Church

Read about North River Community Church in a commentary from Chuck Colson's BreakPoint. I'm a bit biased toward North River, a partner of Forgotten Voices' and where my father serves as the Life Development Pastor. But the commentary is interesting, as is the illustration of quilting the body of believers.

As we work hand in hand with church leaders in Zimbabwe and Zambia, I'm working to find ways to interweave our lives so that it isn't us "saving" Africa or Africa "saving" us...but rather us together ... sharing the story of the love we have found in Jesus Christ...and learning how to share that life together with others... in word AND in deed.

Enjoy the day!
