Tonight we are hosting a brainstorming session. We are building a futures’ watch group and dreaming about how we can equip followers of Jesus to imagine new ways to be a difference and make a difference in God’s world. We don’t just want to help people come up with ideas about how to live into the future of God, we want to enable them to launch their new models.
Two scriptures came to mind as I was praying for our meeting – both of them very encouraging as we imagine the future that God is moving us towards:
Proverbs 24: 14 Know also that wisdom is sweet to your soul; if you find it, there is a future hope for you, and your hope will not be cut off.
Jeremiah 29: 11 For I know the plans I have for you,” declares the LORD, “plans to prosper you and not to harm you, plans to give you hope and a future.
On a lighter note – Not surprisingly this video also came to mind as we were planning this afternoon. I realize that many of you have already seen it but I think it is one of those videos that is always worth another look it is so inspiring even if it is just an add.
