a note from Associate EP Kevin Nollette while at Big Tent:
Rev. Mark Labberton, preaching in dynamic opening worship @ Big Tent.
Challenged us to get beyond the small of religion or church, to the big life of truly living in the Kingdom of God.
Call to people who belong to Jesus that they will exercise the authority of Jesus Christ in the world by making Jesus known in our lives. This is our true identity. Inviting people of all categories to join us living genuinely in Christ. Not with rigid understandings of church, but rather, as those who not for ourselves but living in Christ.
Challenging question: "If I visit your church will I meet anyone like Jesus?"
Where is the evidence? Where is the love? How do we live in Jesus?
Or, is all this just a work of fiction?
Let it be our lives, living centered in Jesus Christ, loving, teaching, serving, as evidence in the world of our Risen Savior Jesus Christ.
