“Godspace gives me a place to connect with like-minded people all over the world; an online space allowing me the freedom to communicate deep spiritual truths which I hope feed our readers while satisfying my own need to share the wonders of our faith. I am so grateful to Christine and Mustard Seed Associates for creating this beautiful garden in which seedling writers like myself can begin to bloom.” (Keren Dibbens-Wyatt)
Many of us have found a renewed intimacy in prayer and a sustained enthusiasm for spiritual formation through Mustard Seed Associates and Godspace. Thank you for being part of our community. We are profoundly grateful for God’s work in the lives of people around the world.
It is hard to believe that 2015 is almost over, and what an incredible year it has been here at Godspace. Over 400,000 visits, 100,000 Facebook shares, 1,000 downloads of free goodies and countless use of prayers, liturgies and reflections in worship, and personal meditation. We now have 35 regular contributors from 7 different countries and expect to continue adding to this in the coming year.
We are delighted at how many have shared photos and reflections as part of the MSA Advent photo challenge and are encouraged by how many have purchased prayer cards to provide a new rhythm for their spiritual lives. We appreciate those who participated in the MSA process of spiritual reflection, group discernment and creativity enabling us to apply it in diverse situations as varied as rethinking a local church to reorganizing a denominational mission organization. And we are encouraged by those who used the questions posed on Godspace to grapple with their own faith issues.
Thank you to the many readers who encouraged and supported us through the vandalism at our Mustard Seed Village site and prayed for us as we discerned God’s way forward. “Thank you for the creative ways in which you modeled hope and forgiveness following the $15,000 in vandalism to the Mustard Seed village.” commented MSA supporter Tom Balke recently. “I was deeply impacted by the way you transformed the broken window shards into symbols of forgiveness and new beginnings.”
As we look ahead to 2016, we believe that the reflections, prayers and resources provided on Godspace will be richer than ever. This has now become the official blog for Mustard Seed Associates which will enable us to continue expanding the resources available. We hope it will also provide new ways for all of us to interact with the material and participate in the Mustard Seed Associates community.
Celebrate with us in 2016 and help us provide much needed discipleship and worship materials. Your end of year gift of $50 $100, $500 or $1,000 will make it possible for us to launch our expanded MSA resource center on the web to help churches, mission organizations and individuals reimagine themselves for a new context.
Your monthly support of $25, $50 or $100 in the coming year will also enable us to produce a rich array of resources for our center of imagination and innovation.
If you have benefitted in any way from Godspace’s resources, we ask you to prayerfully consider helping us expand this ministry so that others may also benefit. Your gift this December will make it possible for us to grow our online resources. 2015 tax receipts will be provided for all U.S. gifts contributed by December 31st. You can also make your year-end gift online here.
