Vision

I have a vision
Of a people
Who are a real Community of Christ
Not just in name,
But by reputation and by deeds.
A community where people can come,
No matter who they are,
When they are hurting and lonely
And will know from experience that they can find
Real love, hope, peace and joy.
A people who are a real Community of Christ.

I have a vision
Of a people
Who believe in the power of prayer.
But more, a people who act on that belief.
A people who actively seek God’s guidance
Who believe prayer can make a difference.
And who back up their prayers with actions.
A people who believe in the power of prayer.

I have a vision
Of a people
Who do not limit the power of the Holy Spirit
Who believe it can work in all situations
In church, in the community, at work, at home, in cyberspace.
Who believe that the power that divided and restored the Red Sea
Can also restore divided lives.
Who believe in a power that can take them by surprise
And use them to minister in ways they did not think possible
A people who are willing to let that spirit
Take them and use them
And amaze them with what ministry they can bring
A people who do not limit the power of the Holy Spirit.

I have a vision
Of a people
Who believe God is real
Who believe He can become real to 21st century society
Whose lives are motivated and enthused by this testimony
A people who believe God is real and relevant
A people who are a Community of Christ.
