My thoughts have been turning to next year and what sermon series would set the best 2011 trajectory for RFC. I have given this quite a bit of reflection and landed at the following sermon series:
We need to be those who 'dwell deep' in Truth; those who plumb new depths, discover new treasures, find fresh delight in God's Word, the Bible.
We need to be those who 'dwell deep' in Building Community; those who take off their masks, reach out, and do life together.
We need to be those who 'dwell deep' in Acts of Service; considering others more important than ourselves, prefering their needs to be met first.
We need to be those who 'dwell deep' in Missional Living; those who are intentional about the people & places that God has placed around us.
And finally we need to be those who 'dwell deep' in Generosity; those who endeavour to cultivate generous hearts expressed in attitudes & actions.
I am really looking forward to this sermon series as it helps set the trajectory for us at RFC for the year ahead - that we 'dwell deep' in the things of God.
