Rewrites and Edits

Emily and I spent the afternoon editing the Micah Project brochure and the website content. (For those of you who will check it out, the new website content is not published yet.) As we discussed and edited, we expressed a desire to share the call, share our passion, within the published word. I was reminded once again what a great opportunity this is--what a radical opportunity!

We are calling people to live a radically transformed life in an urban community. We are calling people to really heed the words "do justly, love mercy, and walk humbly with your God." This isn't child's play--it isn't an easy call! We're calling people who will be radically obedient to the call of Christ--to make disciples of all nations! I want studs--I want those who will be extreme in following the call! This is a chance to create disciples--to create a generation who know how to love the people of our cities, who know how to be Christ there! This is a chance to bring the Kingdom of God to a community that is starving spiritually, emotionally, and phsyically!

This is more than a year-long internship with an urban mission church. This is more than giving up a year of your life to Christ. This is giving your life to Christ! This is saying "not my will but thine!"

I believe in the work that God is doing here! I am honored to be a part of it! Praise God from whom all blessings flow!

Amber recently posted a few poems about Christ that impacted me. Check them out, and be impacted, as well.
