Fruitfulness on the frontline....

Imagine what God might do if our Mission Area Conference used this resource to think about our mission...

‘6Ms’ of fruitful living:

Modelling Godly Character – On our frontline godly character is both developed and displayed. How do we model the fruits of the Spirit where we are day-by-day?

Making Good Work – There is dignity and value in the everyday tasks that we do. What would it mean if we saw how our tasks and work can be done with and for God?

Ministering Grace and Love – In the light of the grace that God has shown to us, how might we minister grace and love to those we interact with on our frontlines?

Moulding Culture -What can we affirm about the way we ‘do life round here’? How can we influence the culture on our frontlines so people flourish more?

Being a Mouthpiece for Truth and Justice – How might we become champions of right living and fair dealing on our frontlines and courageous enough to speak up when necessary?

Being a Messenger of the Gospel – How might we grow in confidence in talking about Jesus with people on our frontlines? Can we see pathways for sharing the Gospel where we are?

Sabbatical in summary...

My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’ 
Oh God, can those words be for me too?
How I long to hear them!
I’m not Moses, but I’m also on a journey – trying to follow Jesus.Some days, life seems like an unmarked wilderness,
and I’m not sure which way to go.
‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I hear you Lord. Help me to trust.Other days, I’m so busy that I don’t stop to listen.
I’m stressed and distracted and frazzled.
‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I hear you Lord. Help me to pause and take time for you.Then there are the days when I do remember.
I walk restfully in your presence.
How different those days are.‘My presence will go with you and I will give you rest.’
Yes, I believe you Lord. Those words are for me. 
Your presence does go with me and give me rest.
Thank you Lord!Amen

Sabbath rest....

As I reflect on my sabbath rest - my sabbatical - these questions from Peter Mead ( Scripture Union daily bible study) got me thinking....When you stop to think about what is on your to-do list, what are the first things that come to mind? Do you trust God with these things?
Do you trust God enough to take a day off?Are you striving to please God for salvation? Rest in what Christ has done.
Are you stressed as you strive in your work, even in your work for God?
Resting can be the ultimate declaration of trust! Let rest remind you of God’s goodness towards you and trust God's faithful provision!Peter Mead

Beginnings...

A journey begins with one step and (with some trepidation) I start my sabbatical.
The hope?
To rest, have time out to reflect on calling,  ministry and what it might look like in the future - personally and within the context of Ruthin....
So, a prayer:
Loving God, in my journeying and my resting, in my listening and or reflecting please guide me and lead me afresh to the light of your truth, Jesus.
For I ask in His name...
AMEN.
