Tomorrow morning (11am) in Fitzroy we will be looking at the heart of God and how God's character then reveals itself in loving actions towards humanity.
In the past few weeks the word KINDNESS has been all over the songs that I have been listening to. New releases from Ben Glover, Frank Turner, Peace and Ray Lamontagne have all been preaching KINDNESS. That set me off looking for a robust definition.
Tomorrow we will look into the vision that Isaiah had of God in the Temple from Isaiah 6 and think of that famous Gospel chapter of John 3. we will ask where God's action towards humans comes from in who God is. We will then ask how that impacts us.
We will find that the world that Glover, Turner, Peace and LaMontagne feel needs kindness might be exactly like the world that Isaiah sees his vision and that Jesus arrives into.
It is the world that the Church is asked to be the Kingdom in...
It will be wrapped up in guitar driven worship that blends the old and the new and a wee rocking' performance piece...
"Come on and shake, shake, shake
Like you're changed, changed, changed
Brand new looks so good on you
So shake like you've been changed..." (MercyMe)
