“What you get by achieving your goals is not as important as what you become by achieving your goals.” It seems to me that Henry David Thoreau’s quote lines up with God’s plan for all of our lives. I’m also seeing how it applies to me and the good people that make up Mosaic Church of Aurora. With the end of our building purchase and renovation goal in sight (we are 29 days and $30,000 from our goal that has already spanned 515 days and $600,000), I’m seeing a very special church emerge.
I’m seeing a church that prays bold, confident prayers. I’m seeing a church that loves and accepts people of all sorts of backgrounds and social status. I’m seeing a church that reflects the ethnic diversity of our neighborhood and more importantly reflects the heart of God. I see a church emerging that can’t imagine life without dirty hands gained from helping people in the messiest arenas of life. I see a church who is comfortable in speaking to and praying with the homeless and the most powerful people in the state. It is so exciting to see an eclectic group of well intentioned but mostly unskilled, untrained, ordinary people become a a church that even the gates of hell will not prevail against.
I am so ready… so very, very ready to see our building goal accomplished. The ways that we will reflect God’s love and positively impact our community out of that building are incredible. But I am even more excited to know that it won’t just be a building… it’ll be a place for the Church to meet, worship and serve. It’ll be a pretty amazing place, with a bunch of amazing people partnering with God to transform lives and an entire community from broken to beautiful.
Please, please pray for us! Pray that we’ll raise that final $30,000 in the next 29 days and that we’ll be a church that pleases God.
