So recently heard a quote which went along the lines of, why would you give a kid a toy without the battery? Pete Gregg from 24/7 Prayer!!
Of course he was referring to prayer in our lives, the necessity of it, the importance of it, and actually the requirement of it if we are to fulfil all that God has for us.
So to this end, we at RolltheRock are hosting a prayer evening on the 29 March, at 7.30 pm at Kairos network church, and we would love to see as many people there as possible to pray into our work, pray into the vision, pray into the finances, and so we hear God for all that he has for us.
So if you can make it please do come along, we want to ensure all that we are and do is rooted firmly in hearing from god, and we have the batteries in place for us to move forward.
We have ideas to create a number of resources that will enable youth leaders to engage better with their young people around issues of identity and discipleship. We are also keen to develop resources to help leaders themselves, as they grow in their roles.
We are now looking for individuals to invest in the creation of these resources.
We need 20 people to invest £50 each into RolltheRock as a one-off gift, to enable us to explore these initiatives further.
Could you be one of those people?
If you would like to invest in the development of creative resources that enable young people and youth leaders to grow, please email firstname.lastname@example.org and let us know that you want to be one of our resource resourcers!
Our hope is to launch these resources in the Spring, so please do consider this and let us know as soon as you can if you are able to support us in this way.
Bless you and, in advance, thanks.
Recently, I've been doing some exploring around the whole issue of legacy, the barriers to legacy and also what enables it. But it got me thinking, how much do we actually consider the legacy we leave to others?
What is it that we would want to be remembered for?
What is it that we are imparting to others that they can run with?
None of us I guess likes the thought of removing ourselves from a situation or context, especially one where we are seeing God at work in people's lives and seeing lives being transformed. But the reality is that we are not around forever, and it is important - vital - to develop a legacy so that others can take on the baton of the race and go further.
Jesus left an amazing legacy, hence why so much of the world now engages in relationship with him in Heaven. He journeyed with a small number of people, spent time with them, shared his vision and enabled people to have a go at what they saw him do. How much of this do we actually do ourselves?
I am so thankful for the input of others in my life and the leadership I have received. Now I hope to have learnt from them and release others to go further than I can go.
Where are you on the legacy scale?
