A Challlenge

i often remind people in our church to be involved in the life of their community. i'm convinced that we must go to people, living lives full of grace and truth--because people will not come to us.

my heart was moved while we were at the evangelism conference we recently attended and i called back home to give a message to the pastor who is coordinating the local high school's baccalaureate service that i would love to be a part of it.

i really should...it is a place i (and other christians) need to be. i recently recieved the order of service for it and this is my job:

"prayers for peace: sikh, zoroastrian, muslim; native american, hindu, jewish, christian"

well now...what do we do???

we cannot compromise our beliefs and pray prayers in ways that are contrary to what we believe...nor can we just run away and hide in the comfort of our pews.

no...we must go.

we must go...full of grace and truth and respect and care and Christlike-ness. we must go and pray for peace...knowing that Jesus is our peace.

i hope they ask me back again next year.
