Week 1-Embodied Faith, Flourishing Communities

Vision and Objective:

Throughout Scripture we see glimpses of a new kind of community being formed by God: a community that reflects God’s Character and lives out God’s Character and lives out God’s teaching, so all of creation can flourish as God intended.  But what is the key to this flourishing community?  It starts with embodied faith.  When we live as Jesus has called us to live, empowered by the Holy Spirit to love radically and participate in God’s work of restoring our broken world, we impact the world through our words and actions.  God never intended for our flourishing to be just about us; we are meant to be a blessing to the world.
