Leaders in the Revolution: An Invitation
Network Exploration Meeting
There is a growing movement of pastors, church planters, and churches around the globe who have become convinced that the center of the Gospel is a Jesus-looking God who calls his people to partner with him to advance a Jesus-looking kingdom. They sense that God is pouring out “new kingdom wine” that is bursting apart the tired old wineskins of Christendom. They sense we are at the cusp of a rising kingdom revolution that is going to radically alter what people identity as “the Christian faith” and “the Church.” The majority of these leaders are both encouraged and discouraged. They are encouraged by the Jesus-looking kingdom revolution they see rising up, but discouraged by the lack of networking and partnership amongst others who share their convictions.
As we have been praying and talking, we feel that God has called us in some capacity to begin calling together these leaders for the purpose of friendship and discernment. Therefore, if you count yourself as a leader or potential future leader in this rising revolution, we invite you to join us on Saturday, September 28, for a time of fellowship and prayer as we have the opportunity to meet one another, pray together, and further discern God’s heart.
Woodland Hills Church will be hosting a ReKnew Conference on September 27-28, entitled “Faith, Doubt and the Idol of Certainty.” The conference ends on Saturday afternoon and all conference attendees are invited to stay for the 5:00 pm worship service at WHC. Following the service, at 6:30 pm, there will be a coffee and dessert gathering for all pastors, church planters, worship leaders, and other ministry leaders who are interested in meeting other leaders who share a desire for friendship and to network with others in ministry.
You need not be an attendee at the ReKnew Conference to attend this leadership gathering, and the gathering is free. But for planning purposes, advance registration is required.
Greg recently decided that he needed to discontinue taking his pain medication despite chronic neck issues for which there are no easy answers. Here he shares that decision and the journey he’s on to remain fully awake to God and others.
One of our Facebook friends pointed out this video to us (Thanks Lukasz!) The comments in this interview on the benefits of fellowship when it comes to doubt and belief are excellent. We’re really going to miss Dallas.
One lucky guy via Compfight While few Christians would deny that Satan is in some sense the ruler of this world, since it’s so clearly taught in the New Testament, many nevertheless insist that everything Satan and every other free agent does fits into a divine plan that is governing every detail of world history.…
What do the Gospels, Christmas Trees, and Eastern Spirituality have to do with one another? Greg Boyd explains in this weeks sermon clip. In the full sermon, we explore the Gnostics belief of the church in Colossae and how those relate to the New Spirituality movements rooted in Eastern thought of our day. We explore…
To properly understand an action, you need to interpret it in the light of the social context in which it takes place. For example, if we were to hear about a white male offering his seat at the front of a bus to an African American woman, we would probably interpret this as a nice…
