In the Church as it is in Heaven Recap

The inaugural “In Garner as it is in Heaven” forum launched this past Saturday.  The tricky thing about public forums is that you just don’t know what you are going to get until the folks show up.  Forums take on a life of their own depending upon the makeup of the crowd.  This event was no different.

The focus of the evening was to discuss what it might look like for God’s will to be done in the church as it is in Heaven.  Originally intending to give hope to folks post-church, the event was actually populated with folks from multiple local churches.  The tone turned hopeful as each talked about church partnership as a demonstration of the peace of Heaven and as a demonstration of God’s will.  One person’s thoughts summarized the evening well:  “If the people in Garner meet people from a church as they serve in the community, maybe it won’t be so hard for people to visit and worship again.”  Classic.  Hopeful.

This week we will again hit Aversboro Coffee on Saturday at 6pm.  You’ll be greeted by good music and good conversation as we discuss what it might look like for God’s will to be done in our homes as it is in Heaven.  For more info check out the schedule here.
