Learning to be the Church in our City

Last Sunday, two things converged: Sanctify decided to connect beyond TFB and Dan Lim pointed to Southern California and showed us the world.

The whole world comes to L.A. to attend school; hundreds are in the South Bay.  What an amazing gift God has given us: he brought the ends of the earth to our doorstep and all we need do is come alongside them in ordinary life and witness to Jesus.

The call to connect as church in our city has converged with the call to witness to Jesus to the ends of the earth.

What a priceless gift.

    Laura,

    This is true in small town America as well. Just last week I met a young woman who was born in Beijing and lived there until she was 16. Our local Subway is owned by a man from Lebanon. My neighbors are from Haiti and the Philippines. The world is here… but we still have to be witnesses.

    This is such an opportunity. We’ve barely begun to figure out how to take advantage of it (we are hindered by full schedules, as are too many of us), but things have definitely begun to happen. I’m sure an update will show up here in the coming weeks.
