Faith at Work

denver.jpgMy model and philosophy for ministry coming to Denver has been to make my “employment”…seeking and walking with Jesus in intense communion and then draw near to people in the community and believe for real, raw, revelatory relationships like Jesus encountered in the gospels. That is what I believed my job was in coming to Colorado.

I didn’t want to be an advertising campaign manager marketing a church, or an entertainer for a consumer culture church, or a CEO for a business model ministry. I wanted to do it the old fashion way…pray in the night, fast during the day, walk among the people with my heart exposed to God & man…THAT WAS MY JOB!

During this most unpredictable journey of of our lives I’ve panicked a few times like Peter walk on waterwalking on water and started looking for “a job”…financial security…to save me from the waves…I’ve doubted that I could actually continue to “walk on water.” We have not drowned, but sadly we are back in the boat soaking wet.

My family and I have made it thus far, but the ache in my heart is that we have not been able to realize the reality of reaching our community. But Why?  Is it my little faith, limited human and financial resources, lack of visibility,

What must I do to do the works of God? Jesus said, Believe! 

It has been harder than I imagined, but more thrilling than I dreamed.

It is time to get BACK to WORK…by FAITH!
