The Mission by Pastor Paul


This past week we heard a great buzz about
Starbucks commitment to diversity.

This next Sunday I will be preaching about
The Mission of the Christian.  


The message of the cross and the message of the world have never walked hand in hand.  We are no different than our Christian ancestors who struggled to live and witness in Roman or Greek cultures.  So what can we learn from those who have gone before us.

The great questions we must wrestle with anew, in our generation, are:

How can we be in the world,
but not of the world?

How do we live close enough to the world to matter,
without getting sucked in?

How do we live as followers of truth,
in a culture committed to diversity?

How do we work for companies,
or do business with companies,
or attend schools,
or watch movies,
or eat foods,
or drive cars,
or take vacations to places,
on airlines,
or hotels,
that disagree with our faith?

These are great questions that should challenge us deeply as we seek to serve the savior and share in The Mission of the Master.  This Sunday we will explore how to present challenging Biblical truth with perfect love!  We will pursue the process of holding unto the cross with one hand while reaching out to the world with the other!  Don't miss this great time of discussion!

See you Sunday,
Pastor Paul

P.S.  We may not have all the answers but we will wrestle together with some great questions!
