What on earth could happen next?
It seems that life, at present in the UK is being lived out on the edge of uncertainty,
and possibly even comes across as being out of control?
Even the media dont know what to write or say as everything it seems is so 'fluid'!
It has felt in recent days a bit like the foundations of what our society has and is built upon is like the shifting sands beneath our feet. Genuinely.......what on earth is happening?
It has been said that life is one big adventure. A rollercoaster of emotions and experience.
I love fun, life and laughter however this all needs to operate within a structure, a framework.
For adventure to happen it needs to always be set into a framework that holds you safe within it i would suggest.
Is this not what Jesus taught when he expanded upon the 10 commandments?
The words Love God and Love your neighbour are good guidance into a world which seems even more at loggerheads with 'who we are supposed to be'.
The framework that seeks to be kind, loving gentle and controlled....
The framework that seeks to consider others...
As I spoke with someone who is pioneering a new expression of the Salvation Army, she said to me, Im just wanting to explore more what it means to live life in all its fullness!
She went on its such an adventure!
Im wondering if the life of fullness should indeed be an adventure into the unknown.
Im wondering have we made the adventure of faith, to much like the 'same old same old?', when it should in fact be vibrant, life giving, life transforming?
Im wondering if we are being called to map a new way in the uncertainty of society today?
Is it possible that the prayer of our hearts and for our nation should be
Lord may 'Your Kingdom come on earth as it is in Heaven'
As we explore pioneering new ways the church of God can engage with the shifting sands of adventure I wonder if God is calling us to push on and through the uncertainty, to model what life in all its fullness can be like? Built upon the sure foundation, built upon Jesus Christ.
