theme scripture: Joshua 3:14-17
In the middle of shifting culture, in the middle of church decline, and in the middle of pursuing vision for the churches we lead…
Many of us feel like we are living somewhere in the middle in our own souls.
Within our own church contexts:
We have prayed
We have asked God for unique assignments, and
We have stepped out towards a brighter future.
And yet very few of us feel like we’re close to arriving; we are not just starting the journey but we are definitely not done yet.
We are in the middle, between vision given and vision achieved.
We want a fresh move of God, we want to love God, ourselves, and neighbours and yet we battle with expectations, comparisons, stress, spiritual conflict, jadedness
… the list goes on.
These main sessions will bring our focus to an old story of Joshua
God’s chosen leader in the middle, we will see how he moves out of the middle towards a God-given future on firm dry ground.
14 So when the people broke camp to cross the Jordan, the priests carrying the ark of the covenant went ahead of them. 15 Now the Jordan is at flood stage all during harvest. Yet as soon as the priests who carried the ark reached the Jordan and their feet touched the water’s edge, 16 the water from upstream stopped flowing. It piled up in a heap a great distance away, at a town called Adam in the vicinity of Zarethan, while the water flowing down to the Sea of the Arabah (that is, the Dead Sea) was completely cut off. So the people crossed over opposite Jericho. 17 The priests who carried the ark of the covenant of the Lord stopped in the middle of the Jordan and stood on dry ground, while all Israel passed by until the whole nation had completed the crossing on dry ground.
