Thanks to Steve Taylor for compiling, organizing and posting all these up.
Here’s the short & quick “answers” I wrote in response to the questions:
How were you as an emerging community birthed? We were birthed five years ago, on April 1 2000 in my home. About 15 of us were part of the core to restart a Lutheran church that closed down for many years.
What do you as an emerging community value? Allegiance to the Lordship of Christ; Living by Gods Grace; Godly Servant Leadership; Biblical Preaching and Teaching; Authenticity; Passionate Worship; Loving Community; A Heart for People; Prayer; Life in the Spirit; Kingdom Lifestyle; Telling the STORY.
I don’t think we “lived” out the values equally. In my view I think we’ve been stronger in some and weaker in others.
What music track sums up your year? Walk On by U2
What was your best mission moment in 05? Working with another Methodist Church to “do something” for the Tsunami Victims (for more go here). Coming up to close second would be a couple of events during the Christmas season.
