Midweek Mission Moment 4/19/23
FROM JANE DAVIS
I am praying for you this morning…
The words keep playing in my head…
“Because He LIVES, I can face tomorrow…”
Easter came…there were early morning praise services…our churches were packed…we said, “Christ is risen!”…
the tomb is empty.
And then, many just put the Easter experience back on the shelf, until next year.
But HE LIVES! He lives within YOU! Within ME.
Nothing “shelf-worthy” about this earth-shaking experience.
It changed everything. It changed me…He changed me.
And, because He LIVES, we can face tomorrow…
“God sent His son…
They called Him Jesus.
He came to love, heal and forgive.
He bled and died, to buy my pardon…
The empty tomb is there to prove my Savior lives.
And because He lives…
I can face tomorrow…
Because He lives, all fear is gone.
Because I know, He holds the future…
And life is worth the living…
Just because He lives.”
Happy Easter…again and again.

I’m sure you have heard by now of the outpouring at Asbury University over the last two weeks. What started as a few students staying after a worship service to continue to pray grew into an awakening that saw thousands travel to Kentucky to be a part of it! No bright lights, no famous Christian musicians or renowned speakers. Just simply, praying to God for a new awakening of His people and His Spirit to pour out over all creation. So simple, yet so powerful.

Monica goes on to say, “The Table is ‘church’ reinvented. Around the table, dinner conversations will center around food and faith stories. The table provides an opportunity for guests to share and hosts to listen. Our targeted guests will initially be a select group of friends from our marginalized community. We want our Mustard Seed friends who have become our family to be our first dinner guests.”
Writer and scholar, Leonard Sweet once said, Whenever I’m asked, ‘What is God up to?’ my most common answer is, ‘Have you heard of dinner church?” Dinner church is a type of microchurch where the meal and the table are not simply points of distinction from other churches; they are essential to the congregation’s makeup. Microchurches are intentionally small, which allows the type of inclusion that notices everyone and a place where all are heard and given the opportunity to contribute.
Lastly, Monica shared, “Authentic fellowship leads to discipleship, one meal at a time. When new disciples start sharing stories from the table with others, those others will come, and that is what I call “church.”
Vernon Fosner, who has written books on the dinner church movement says, “For Jesus, the dinner table was the invitation to faith. Jesus clearly embedded the gospel into the dinner-table theology.”
Please join us in praying for this new ministry and all that God will do through it and among the participants.
