dreaming outloud

dreaming outloud in a burst of brainstorming urgency…

dreaming that faith conversations in two-parent homes will increasingly be sparked by the initiative of fathers…

dreaming that parents will access the creativity and support of other parents, initiating mutually beneficial conversations about life and faith…

dreaming that singles will have a place at the table as whole persons who are full participants in communities of faith…

dreaming that missional innovation will be unleashed from the homes of parishioners as a direct consequence of their prayers and shared Bible reading and conversations…

dreaming that pastors will be unleashed to mentor their fellow members of the royal priesthood (anyone whose name is written in the Lamb’s book of life), thereby tearing down false walls of the clerical/laity divide…

dreaming that false dichotomies which mischaracterize persons, organizations, the Bible, and God,  will be effectively dispelled for the sake of clarity concerning the gospel…

dreaming that people will grab on to hope in the midst of despair, joy in the midst of fear, opportunity in the midst of chaos, simplicity in the midst of confusion, relationship in the midst of distrust, and laughter in the midst of anger, recognizing that God is still God regardless of the dynamic seismic shifts occurring in society…

dreaming that children will be given their proper priority as children in homes and the larger society, without overindulgence prone to teach them selfishness, but with a proper balance of discipline, provision and love necessary to teach them to be fully who God has intended them to be, members of the royal priesthood, followers of the Lord Jesus Christ.
