Value No. 2: #creativepeace .
As we have been seeking to be more concise with our values we realized that we were using 4 words that were actually one larger idea. #justice & #peace for Mennonite Jesus Followers are really one thing, they both speak to the world not being what it should be and moving towards God's plan for harmony and #shalom (divine peace). #beauty was our value that we used to talk about God creating beauty in nature and that we need to value and take care of creation. We now see that this really part of peacemaking, and that to value peace we also value the environment. The second half of valuing beauty was that we value the creative people who add beauty to our world through the arts. Really #creativity has been an unofficial value at the Commons from the start. We have come to recognize that Creativity is an act of Peace. When we make something new we have added to the world rather than destroying a piece of it. We also know that any act that leads to peace or justice is inherently a creative one because peacemaking must think outside the box. We have even noticed that the creative community and the justice community is often the same group of people and we don't think that is a coincidence. That is why at The Commons we value "Creative Peace."

After my MTh, PhD and DTh in Theology I received my postdoctoral Magister theologiae results (with distinction) from the NWU, today. In a few months I will finish my postdoctoral research in management studies/marketing (MCom, University Cape Town). Then I plan a Postdoc-PhD in religious marketing, priming and escapism. #lifelonglearning #theology #marketing #emergingchurch #willowcreek @billhybelsh

Being the church in the 21st century calls us to new challenges and demands greater commitment and understanding of our faith and action.

This year, we’ll explore how we are still relevant and what it means to be Moravian today. We want to focus on ways that Moravians are or can still be relevant in their spiritual lives, congregational lives, and mission in the world.

What does relevance look like for the church today? What is God calling us to do or be in the 21st century? A day of learning and fellowship, Leadership Focus provides education, training, and discussion opportunities for Southern Province Moravians.

"Emergent church" - so heißt in den USA eine Aufbruchbewegung innerhalb der Kirchen. Sie lebt von der Idee, dass neue Muster in der Welt (und in der Kirche) unkontrollierbar kommen und wieder gehen. Im Grunde genommen heißt Kirchenentwicklung nichts anderes als das sich Erfassenlassen durch diese Bewegung und kreative Energie. Wind. Geisteskraft. #emergent #emerging #emergentchurch #emergingchurch #church #churchinnovation #churchdevelopment #innovation #socialinnovation #kirchenentwicklung #frischerwind #holyspirit #aufbruchstimmung #kirche #reformiert #reformation #pastor #pastors #pfarrer

STRONGER :: “Stay strong; your eyes on Christ. Rare peace is a byproduct of a life of rest — resting in all that God has done through the finished work of Christ, and learning to come to the end of self.” #MAKERSchurch // Art: @juleco

So true and so sad! How love, acceptance, understanding, empathy and compassion have been replaced by judgment and false religion. No wonder so many people don't believe in God. #justice #love #christian #christianity #equality #justice #marriageequality #freedom @start_aod_community @trentandersen_ @recoveryroom_melb #socialjustice #faith #spirituality #emergingchurch #salvos #salvationarmy @salvosau #itsnottoolate

I have been submitted to this man for 19 years. And every time I sit at his feet, I walk away with clarity, guidance, wisdom & boldness to be who I am in the earth! I’m grateful for the VOICE and LEADERSHIP that the Father has chosen for my life! Bishop Ralph L. Dennis is the epitome of a spiritual father! #GladToBeCovered #Doors #All3OfThem #EmergingChurch

If you can't get a seat at the table, get out your hammer and nails and build a new table.

Sometimes the way to make change is literally to make it.

Comes a time when the energy we once used trying to be seen and heard is better spent creating better, safer spaces. When we leave the old guard to their ghoulish tomb interior decorating and head out into the wilds, no matter how afraid we are.

They told you you'd never survive out there. But we have, we are. We are thriving. And there are more of us out here in the wilderness than you know.

Close your eyes and come over the threshold. Open arms await. Open spaces are ready. The path is spread before you, next steps toward healing, toward wholeness.

There is a movement. Come.

Jesus first, Others second, Yourself last - unselfishness is the key to JOY.

Jesus says, I didn't make up that stupid platitude. Ditch it. You and I walk together. Watch my heels, rest when you need to. Stop trying to fix others. Be kind where ever possible. It's mostly possible. Clean up your messes. Pay your debts. Look after your responsibilities, and help others do the same. You only get one body. Your mind can break just like your heart. Put self-care first. That's your job. Selfishness has become a dirty word, but I was selfish, Jesus says. I did what I wanted, when I wanted, with whom I wanted. I ate well, fasted when necessary, took time for service, and time for prayer, and time with friends. I went off by myself to rest and think, when I needed to. I kept my distance from those who wanted a piece of me. I had to, otherwise they'd have ripped me to pieces. And they did in the end. Didn't they?

Didn't they? ...............

'Our real beliefs are generally not to be found at the level of ego. '

Did God really say leaving the Garden wasn't ever going to be necessary for Adam and Eve? Was their having to leave it a diversion from a plan, or perhaps an inevitability?
Is this story, rather than being the cautionary tale we've been told, a misunderstood or misinterpreted Hero's Journey in the fashion of Joseph Campbell?

The world is changing. So is the Christian evangelical church. There was a time— not that long ago—when the Bible was considered to be the Word of God by the majority of evangelical Christians. Now that we are well into the third millennium and the post-modern, post-Christian era, the term evangelical can mean almost anything. What has happened? Why is this happening and what is the future for mainstream Christianity?

For the past several years, I have been speaking around the world on current trends that are impacting Christianity. After these presentations, I am approached by Christians who come from many different church backgrounds. Many are expressing their concerns about what is happening in their churches, troubled by the new direction they see their church going. While they may not always be able to discern what is wrong, they know something is wrong and that it needs to be addressed.
Further, many have told me they have attempted to express their concerns with their pastors or church elders. In almost every case, they were told they had a choice to make—get with the new program or get out of the church.
This move towards a reinvented Christianity (one designed to “reach people”) seems to be here for the long haul. It is not just a passing fad. I am often asked by concerned brothers and sisters in Christ to provide an explanation in order to help them understand what they have encountered. They want to know why these changes are underway and what to expect in the future. As well, they want to know what, if anything can be done, to stem this tide. It is for this reason I am writing this commentary—to provide biblical insight regarding the Emerging Church and where it is heading in the future.

The Gospel According to the Scriptures

Throughout church history, various trends have come and gone. While culture changes from place to place, biblical Christianity has always been based upon the central message of the Bible which is the gospel of Jesus Christ and the message never changes.

This gospel message is about who Jesus Christ is, and what He has done. A child can...(to read entire article, click on link in bio) #EmergingChurch #Apostasy #BeABerean
