This was on our church notices this week. Couple this with the Low video I had a few days back and you have almost my whole life philosophy.
A Prayer for this Church
Enable this church to do your will
Make it vulnerable so that it may speak with calm humility;
Make it outward looking that it may care deeply
Make it a community of peacemakers and bridge builders
In the midst of turbulence let the church make space for the hearing of your still small voice.

As humans we seek warmth and safety. We can pattern church on this: ‘nothing changes here’ or in the case of large churches, whole lives and relationships that basically live inside the building. I like this prayer- it encourages me to turn outwards and bless, be humble and seek what God might be saying. It is a world away from the spiritual ghetto.
