This task of designing the emerging church, new worship gatherings, and different ministries must be one that drives us to our knees. It is one that we cry out to God for, asking him to reveal if he is in this, or if it is simply our own ‘human origins’ and personal desires. And as we do that the burden is lifted. We are simply servants of the King. He will decide if he wants us to start something new or not. I personally take great refuge in that. As we experiment with creating worship gatherings, we need to always remember it isn’t about us and our dreams – it is about Jesus and his Church. It isn’t about being creative – it is about Jesus and his Church. It isn’t about rethinking our churches – it is about Jesus and his Church… There is security in knowing that if what we do is of God, then it will happen.

And so it goes.
