A place to come, sit, pull up a chair, and talk awhile
Please pray that the Lord would open doors and that we would have favor with man- and favor with Chaplains - to present the Gospel through the arts - in one of the darkest places on earth.....calling on our Ephesians 3:20 God to do MORE than we can fathom or imagine!! My biggest, most wildest imagining would be that chaplains would adopt our program and allow us into the system....my God promises to do MORE than these things I have imagined....Let's go God!! Let's do this thing!
Have you ever noticed that the world is a sweeter place in December? People seem to smile more. They greet you at the checkout counters, talk and laugh. " Merry Christmas" is still heard on the lips, and it is always accompanied by smiling eyes.....a season of wonder. A season of expectation....and, really, isn't that what Christmas is all about - expectations rising? Wonder multiplying? Santa's cool - he is the symbol behind the season - for me- a jolly, old elf....that says its ok to be kind, and giving - it is almost expected during Santa's season...but, the true gift- the gift that is beyond measure is a baby. God, in all of His infinite Glory chose to save the world, one night, with a pink, wrinkled, vulnerable baby- that the world didnt recognize. When the face of God entered the world, He was at the height of vulnerability . He came and met mankind, flesh to flesh, in a stable, with flies, and poop, and scratchy straw- He met mankind in all of its filth- and the heavens erupted in praise. I love the unpredictability of God- I love that He does things that amaze, confuse and fill me with wonder.
Christmas- houses this time of wonder. The world slows down. The world smiles more...how about if we take the month of December and give the gift of the Gospel throughout our sidewalks? What better gift to give this Christmas- than the Word, that became flesh?
I am so excited to tell you all about a divine appointment and a blessing that we found through, "His Kingdom Come", a faith based creative community. In our attempts to have global impact, God crafted a beautiful partnership between these two groups. In His Kingdom Come, there are workshops, challenges, swaps and various communities. Salty Sidewalks is housed under the "Community Outreach" portion. With members flooding in from all over the globe - you can see the unlimited potential God has provided for His words to hit the streets.
His Kingdom Come also houses two exciting free projects: "Take Me Deeper" and "Logos 365". These are both intentional, deep pairings of scripture, art, prayer and introspection. As we go deeper- we can provide inspirational, thoughtful, provoking artwork to use as a salt leak.
Please head over to "His Kingdom Come" and see what it is all about!
