created for justice, spirituality, relationship and beauty

In Simply Christian (which our staff is almost finished reading together) N T Wright says that we are:

Workers for justice,

Explorers of spirituality,

Makers and menders of relationships and

Creators of beauty

What an incredible picture of who we can be and yet I find myself so often lost in the midst of a week tempted to spend my time:

Working on the mundane

Exploring mediocrity

Making people happy and managing expectations and

Creating a mess.

We were created for justice, spirituality, relationship and beauty – I don’t know why we settle for less and ignore the whispers of our true identity.

 That’s the struggle we are exploring in our current message series – Identity Theft.  Last week Brian Mann created a great video on moving from consuming to serving.
