We dream of a church where people are free to attempt great things for God; where people have nothing to prove and therefore nothing to lose; where creativity and innovation are honored, not feared; where all kinds of people serve God in all kinds of ways.
It’s part of a web site introducing visitors to their church, starting with their dreams, moving into some basics of faith and finishing with basics about visiting their church.
I like the idea (though the pop up window format is annoying), especially the emphasis on the church’s dreams. Too often I think the church simply doesn’t dream. We do what’s adequate and move on. We never dream big, think large, or imagine that just maybe God does want to do something incredible. Businesses dream and it takes them pretty far. Shouldn’t we—the people of God, who have reason to expect dreams to become reality—be dreaming? (link via Jason Reynolds, the Web Ministry Coordinator at Stonebriar Community Church)
