speed the light
Tonight I went to the Annual STL Tour for our Chicago South District. Basically, it serves as a reminder and a challenge to youth pastors about the needs for STL. It was a great time to connect with old friends, but I can’t help leave challenged. The Illinois District has a lot of work to do to catch up and provide vehicles and equipment for our missionaries. One of the requests waiting to be met is dated all the way back to 1999.
That’s just unacceptable to me.
My prayer is that this year, Stone Church will do it’s part to raise the necessary funds to help our missionaries reach the people to which they’ve been called.
In fact, we’ve really got to step things up at crew and become more missional. One of my goals is that 2008 would be marked by a passion to reach out to our communities and schools. It’s just not enough for us to attend a weekly service or interact in a small group. Something inside us needs to wake up and realize the world doesn’t revolve around us. Part of this starts with Missions (giving and going). Now. Not tomorrow. Not after high school. Not after college or marriage. Now.
It is called “Speed” the Light, after all.
And since we’re on that theme, here’s a STL video we made a few years ago.
