movement in mission

Tomorrow represents my first mission initiative at Opawa. Tomorrow for Opawa is spring clean day.

I have invited the church to gather at either 9 am or 1 pm … and to work together in groups, either spring cleaning around the church, or spring cleaning into the community … picking up rubbish, mending broken fences.

About a week ago we letterboxed, letting people know we were coming.

On Sunday is spring clean Sunday, exploring the spirituality of de-cluttering our lives, wiping our interior surfaces, being wholebodied.

It is this mix of community, servanthood and spirituality, that I hope will become a hallmark of Opawa in mission.

I’m nervous … will people come … are we organised enough … are we disorganised enough …

  1. I hope they’ll come and join in. Hope that both Saturday and Sunday go well…The church is sent to continue Jesus’ ministry and to embrace the suffering neighbor, seeking healing and hope. As we respond, our hearts will be nurtured and transformed – we will grow and flourish :-)

  2. i’m spring cleaning my office. i accepted a new position at work, and with it comes another office. so i’m cleaning out things that are 10-15 years old.

    except for the dust which makes me sneeze, i’m loving it.
