ServeFest 08 and spiritual anatomy

Posted in better disciples, more disciples at 10:30 PM by alexlozada

By now, Mountain members (and especially adult small groups serving together) have heard the call to volunteer for ServeFest 08, Saturday April 26.  This quote from Rick Warren captures some of the motive behind Mountain spending large chunks of time and money on serving our local community:

The New Testament says the church is the body of Christ, but for the last 100 years, the hands and feet have been amputated, and the church has just been a mouth. And mostly, it’s been known for what it’s against. … I’m so tired of Christians being known for what they’re against.

In keeping w/ the medical analogies from Mountain’s recent Sunday message series “Grace Anatomy” – serving others (both those w/in the church and those outside in the community) re-attaches those amputated hands and feet.
