Kenton's Session endorsed the New Wineskins proposal a couple of months ago. We've read material, prayed about what is going on and chose to step out in faith and we believe obedience.
What will happen? I honestly don't have a clue. What I hope happens is that God shows up and those of us who are there are captured by God's vision for His Holiness and what it means to follow His Son. In fact, that's what I expect to happen.
What will that mean for our little spot in the kingdom here in North Portland? I honestly don't have a clue. I imagine we will be challenged by the Holy Spirit to meet the needs of the world around us and preach Christ. DUH!! I also hope that those of us there will be able to express what God has done in and with us to those who weren't able to be there.
What do YOU need to do? Pray for us. Pray for God to be in the details, the worship, and the working groups. Pray for the Holy Spirit to show up in power. Pray for us to see God's vision with a clarity that can be explained to the greater church.
