Where are you planted?

In the days of the early church a greek philosopher, Aristides, was tasked by Caesar Hadrian to get to the bottom of the cult called the way.  Here is a brief summary of his report back to Caesar,

“they love one another, he who has given to him who has not without boasting, and when they see a stranger, they take them into their own homes and rejoice over them as a very brother, and if there is among them any that are poor and needy and if they have no spare food, they fast two or three days in order to supply to the needy their lack of food. Such, O King is their manner of life, verily this is a new people and there is something divine in the midst of them.”

As we near the end of the fall series, The Consecrated Church, let it continue to challenge us to become planted by the river in the midst of the transforming hope unleashed by the Father.  Through Spirit-led transformation and maturation processes, let us become united as one body so that we can influence the river to deepen as it flows and spread hope throughout our 99%.
