Here’s why we are engaging a fresh space to make time to slow down, be in scripture, sing some songs, and listen to the spirit together.
It’ all started with our 24 hour prayer. After the 24-hour prayer time, we spent moments as a family speaking words of encouragement, truth, hope and love over one another. Words and truth we HEARD God speaking to us. That’s pretty amazing, right?! Because we stopped long enough to listen. One of the things I heard from Spirit over the next couple of weeks was a consistent reminder that I needed “space to listen”. If I wanted to hear Spirit speak, see Spirit move, be connected to my Missio family through Spirit’s presence...then I….we need to consistently and regularly be people who slow down and take time together to listen.
House Worship will be a space to listen. Quarterly, we are going to have time as a family to intentionally perk our ears up together and listen close to what God is speaking over our community and our city. This will be a supplement to the regular rhythm of gathering on Sundays, not a replacement or a substitute.
The gathering we do on Sunday’s is done with intentionality – to be together in God’s presence, to remember Jesus, be invited to the table, and to be reoriented in the True Story.
House Worship will also be done with intentionality. We want to make space to listen. To respond. All our Missional Communities are invited together into this space. We will come together and lean in and intentionally orient our hearts together to what the Spirit is doing in and through us. We will sing, read scripture, pray and we will be silent – in hopeful anticipation that we will meet God because we know God is always eager and ready to meet us.
I hope to see you there!
