A Beautiful Weekend
Over the weekend, we had the privilege of participating in an event designed to present to the church her Lord and Bridegroom, Jesus Christ. Those who attended were already on some level of searching for something outside of the normal, institutional church system. Many had already stepped out of the system. Many were looking for a way out but didn’t know where to go or what to do next. All were hungry to know more about this amazing Christ.
Many folks met for the first time, but you never would have guessed it. Connections were made, and the network of the body of Christ grew. The love and fellowship shared were palpable and fascinating to watch. The life of Christ was expressed naturally, without effort. Folks learned some context with the history of the story of the early church and Christ. Folks heard first-hand experiences of being members of a family functioning together to display the life and love of God. Folks learned the value of the flowing of the Living Water in the temple. Folks were presented Christ.
For those possibly searching for something outside of the church system, I recommend checking out the books and articles of our friend, Milt Rodriguez. He and his wife are beautiful, loving saints who preach Christ and Him crucified. They are also organic church planters. A link to their website, The Rebuilders, is now on our sidebar under the “Resources” tab.
Also, be sure to come back tomorrow for the second installment of Bridget’s Martha and Mary series. 🙂
