Good News

Post from: KrisAnne

Our discussion Wednesday night centered around what we see as the Good News of God for the world, what God’s Mission is all about… what we believe about it, what excites us about it, what it means for us and for those who don’t know God yet.  Good News is exciting! If it ain’t exciting, it ain’t good news!

We talked about 2 Corinthians 5, and the privilege we have to be ambassadors of God’s Good News. I heard many energized, committed ambassadors speak that night. We were exploring possibilities, asking questions, naming how God was already at work. We recognized that so many churches struggle to find ways to connect with their neighborhoods, and here are playing catch-up because our community is coming to us, asking to connect with us. The world notices movement and movement is happening at DMC, clearly.

It seems that God has given us a gift, has brought our community to us– Steve Kriss reminded us that the hard work is ahead. How do we cultivate what God has brought to us? How do we carefully, lovingly nurture these relationships? Our ministry is a ministry of reconciliation (2 Corinthians5).  How can we continue to be agents of reconciliation for our community– with God, with creation, and between people? What is the way forward?
