What should God's people look like? A call to what ACC should be in 2013.

Ed planned to talk to us about the vision of what our church should look like (see summary on attached word document) but instead felt called to spend most of his time thinking about the overall message of Luke's gospel, challengeing us, indivudally and as a church, to answer Jesus' question "Who do YOU say I am?" and then the implied second question of "What are you going to do about it?".  Will we give oursleves as a church to 'the Way' of Jesus?
- FOLLOWING him whatever the cost? (discpleship)
- PROCLAIMING him whatever the response? (mission)
- LOVING God and our neighbours above all else? (worship & fellowship)

Ed then talked about what God was saying to ACC for 2013 - in particular the call to increased prayer and deeper Spirit-life and the challenge to hear God's strategy for our mission together here - how do we start to work out his calling on us to reach the lost and serve the poor in South Abingdon, across the town and out into the villages where several of us live?

One thing God has spoken clearly about is the importance for us of reaching young people and going into schools so at the end Ed handed over to Viki Gale to talk about how DESIRE have been doing this over the past 9 years and what is happening in the next few months - the challenge to all of us is how we support this and get involved!
