Clyde and a vision of church
To my delight Clyde is back and I shall be linking to him once again.
Furthermore, he is worshipping at Thad's Church I just love their Statements of Mission, Vision and Values.
Just read them:
To bring the love of Jesus to the lives of people in positive, practical and transformative ways
A community of all kinds of people committed to living the love-spreading, difference-making life that Jesus calls us to lead
We live love-spreading, difference-making lives
We are called to be blessers not cursors
We will be courageous enough to engage God’s work and act
We are building the kingdom, not a church
We are hospitable, safe and accessible
We believe that there is no such thing as scaring or bullying people into heaven
We believe you can’t practice God’s love alone
We lead by serving
We know that love is reflected in love
We are Monday-Saturday followers of Jesus, who worship on Sunday
So much better than the sex policeman rubbish that has been in the news recently!
