FinderSeekers on this side of eternity

OIP-9

I thank you for your ever-mounting interest as we continue building a community of what I can best describe “On This Side of Eternity” as FinderSeekers.

God knows we like to be part of something bigger than ourselves. It is a part of His thinking — His design for each of us. He created us to seek new beginnings, to ask “why,” to think, to seek, to act upon the reality and the glory of His eternal Word.

Your stories, our stories: some end of the road stories, some turn around prickly stories – we are an odd mismatch of beauty and pain.

We are FinderSeekers entangled together — not in a barbwire maze but within a community of the faithful and disenfranchised, all at different stages of finding, yet all still seeking.  FinderSeekers all.

It’s important that we understand that this is not a finding that ends the seeking process mainly because that process is never over. When Jesus said “ask, seek, knock,” He really meant “keep on asking, keep on seeking, keep on knocking.” Seeking in this sense is not like a hunt with a destination; it’s an attitude, a philosophy, a way of life. There are seekers and there are settlers, content with the status quo. We are seekers and whatever we find opens the door on new places to seek and new things to seek for.

We remain committed to you, to the growth of this community, and to helping you find God in the world. Together we are making an impact in the marketplace that comes from being bearers of Christ, spreading His fragrance wherever we go. And who is equal to this task? We all are, because God has made us adequate as servants of His new covenant.

Together we are the Catch Community.  All of the aspects of the Catch Ministry, including the daily Catch let us connect and exchange with one another in the personal ways that we all crave.

As an intricate part of this community, we are locking arms with our early leaders who incorporated the Ministry in 2012 to recover the original purpose of the church — its mandate to make disciples to introduce the Gospel of Welcome — Grace Turned Outward — to Everyone, Everywhere, and expressing the character of Jesus through each of us.

That’s powerful stuff!

    I’ll try again:
    Hi Pastor John:

    Hope & pray this finds you & all of your loved ones doing & feeling well. Wanted to ask you how come you can find the time to figure out how to do and post in the Catch a video of you talking a need for money, yet seemly can’t about doing what you once did in reading the Catch?

    Sincerely,
    Mark
