Thy Kingdom Come

Image hosted by Photobucket.com

Just as the world changed forever with the invention of the prinitng press and the industrial revolution, so this generation stands at a time of profound social change…

A generation that finds itself in the crux of such a change has a significant responsibility for shaping the new ways of thinking that will define its own age but also that of the coming era.

Will Jesus Christ be famous and favoured in the coming age, or will he be a peripheral choice on the menu of social preference? You can call the culture ‘progressive, ’emerging’ or ‘postmodern’, but the challenge is the same: to reinvent the church without changing the message, to reach this generation for the sake of the age to come.

    I must confess they are not my words… but man, they’re heavy on my heart. They come from the book i’m reading, Red Moon Rising, and is the combination of a quote from a guy called Graham Cray and the founder of 24/7 prayer, Pete Greig. Reminded me of the song, Famous One. Oh how I long for that in my generation! “Oh that you would burst the heavens and come down!” (Isaiah 64)
