This Spring and Summer we’re going to be embarking on a new series called “Streams of Living Water: exploring unity and diversity in the church”. We’re going to be exploring the wondrous and varied expressions of the body of Christ – streams, if you will. There are many streams that comprise the whole body of Christ. We hope to place ourselves in a position in which we can be challenged by and learn from other streams and, ultimately, come to love Jesus more through the beautiful expressions of his Bride. In John 4, Jesus offered the Samaritan woman a drink from a stream of “living water” that he promised if we drank from we’d never thirst again. In John 7:37-38 Jesus said, “Anyone who is thirsty may come to me! Anyone who believes in me may come and drink! For the Scriptures declare, ‘Rivers of living water will flow from his heart.” This is what we want for each of us and we believe that this will happen through the exploration of these streams of the church.
This series will be based on a classic book by Richard Foster called “Streams of Living Water”. Perhaps you want to grab a copy and follow along. We’ve heard from many of you that this would be a good idea – so let’s make it happen! We’ll be starting June 4.
